nerve damage problems, help please? - February 5th 2010, 05:57 AM

Hey, So i had shingles a while back and it gave me some permanent nerve damage in my back all along my nerve lines. I originally got shingles from stress and so now whenever I get stressed or overly emotional then i feel as if the shingles are there again. Its like someone has a voo-doo doll of me and is just sticking needles in me. Its painful and annoying to say the least.

So I was wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem? Im going to a chiropractor soon, my mom seems to think this will help, but im skeptical because i always thought that was more to do with the skeletal system rather than the nervous system.

So if anyone has ever had this/ known someone who has had this and what they did to help it please let me know.

The shadow proves the sunshine.

I'm sorry! That sounds ouchie!

Have you been to a neurologist? I know people that get diagnosed with shingles say that gabapentin aka neurontin helps a lot with the pain.
