Hello drm1963. Not certain as to what your question is, pledge

Absolutely - that is shingles, it effects and damages the nerves & so follows whichever nerve was attacked by your episode. Mine was in the upper portion of my back, left side & down my arm to my fingertips. You can trace the path of the nerves in Grey's anatomy.

Thanks, beazy39, you can't believe how many times I have been to the chiropractor thinking that would help and it doesn't. How long until your pain went completely away?

Sorry to say it has not. As I'm sure you have found from reading some of the posts here, this can be a long, long term problem. Some have found relief w/various prescriptions and combinations of drugs & creams, but everyone reacts differently. Work with your doctor, seek a pain specialist if you can or a neurologist.
