Shingles or herpes zoster is the same thing as the chicken pox virus that has been hiding in your peripheral nerve endings for years waiting for a good time to break out and make your life miserable. Thankfully there is a medicine to treat the nerve pain and that is Neurontin or generic name is gabapentin. I've been taking the medication and it does work.
Good luck and I hope you feel better quickly.
