Since I had Shingles and afterward, post herpetic neuralgia (PHN) I've been meeting up with other people who had it.
I have understood that it can take a year to get rid of it and sometimes several months. I unearthed some studies on the web where they listed statistics for what percentage of patients fully recover and what percentage never get over it.
Since I started reading these forums, I notice a lot of posters who describe ongoing discomfort that they can't get rid of.
Is there anyone here who has had PHN who is fully recovered?
Right now, I am on a rigid diet and exercise regimen with a low dose of Amitriptyline.
Even though my provider talks about PHN going on indefinitely, I was hoping I could get rid of it and be functional again.
