Postherpetic Neuralgia (Shingles) nerve damage

Hello, I actually developed shingles after receiving a radio frequency ablation for chronic pain issues and nerve damage in my spine. I am not sure why this happened, but I understand my case is rare. I am in my mid-thirties and living in Colorado where marijuana is legal, and while I do not use anything that alters my mind at all – I do utilize the topical creams and they work better than any other compound cream or oils I've ever used! My favorite topical for nerve pain that helped me with my usual nerve pain, and after the ablation with the shingles is from a company called NectarBee and the product is called Nerve Salve and in CO a store called "The Green Solution" sells it. Unfortunately you cannot buy these products online, but I wanted to mention it just in case you lived in a state that has dispensaries. I cannot imagine living with shingles for a decade or more, I am sorry you have to go through that! I hope you find something that helps!!

Hello @laceydmw and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for joining the conversation and offering to share what has worked for you with your nerve pain. How long have you had shingles and how long did it take you to find this topical that is working well for you?
