... and came across this support group. I've been suffering from this PHN for over 20 years now, and it seems to be getting worse. I got the shingles on the side of my neck and to the top of my head. After they went away, I started having all these strange ailments (mostly in the neck) and it took me18 years to find the right doctor who could tell me what was wrong. What are some of the things that you suffers do to relieve the pain. I'm on gabapentin, have had several nerve blocks, physical therapy, and many other things that the doctors had suggested. Thanks, Keith
