Hi , I had the shingles on my left rub cage around 2 years ago. Unfortunately I did not have a rash and therefore was mis diagnosed for months. As a result of not being treated for the shingles quick enough I am now left with neuralgia on my rib cage. I am currently on Lyrica and amitriptyline at night and this is taking the pain away slightly. However, I get really bad flare ups and I am constantly at the doctor getting my tablets increased. I also have lidocaine patches but because of where on the body it is they do not stick. This is completely ruining my life as I am still young. Does anyoneb have any suggestions that I could try ?
