Came down with first bout oh shingles in September... I am still suffering from terrible burning pain in my right eye four months later. The rash went away within a week after going on antivirals and I thought I was getting better. Then the post shingles neuralgia set in and has been awful. The numbers forehead is bearable but the burning in the eye is fierce. Eye very bloodshot. Was given Prednisone eye drops by eye doc two weeks after outbreak months ago. Did not help. Trying to see an opthalmologist in Toronto is next to impossible they book months ahead to see anyone. I have seen one but refuses to see me for weeks from now. Has anyone suffered burning eye pain for months after shingles on forehead and near eye. Been told eye pressure is fine etc. Some keratitis in right eye, but I can not get any concern from doctors and I am getting scared as this lingers on.
