Hi, @nighthawk50 - welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll note I merged your post with this discussion, "Postherpetic Neuralgia (Shingles) nerve damage around eye, eyebrow, forehead & scalp" so that you could meet other members talking about postherpetic neuralgia.

I had postherpetic neuralgia after shingles myself, and it was tough. I remember wondering if the itching would ever go away.

Please meet @1977lizzy @joanlee @sjsmall5286 @oranbaughn, as well as @johnbishop. I trust these members will have some helpful input for you on postherpetic neuralgia and on the effectiveness of neural ablation for this condition.

Here is some Mayo Clinic information on postherpetic neuralgia that may be of interest: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/postherpetic-neuralgia/symptoms-causes/syc-20376588

Will you share a little of your story related to postherpetic neuralgia, @nighthawk50?
