Hi Lisa Happy New Year

Yes my pain is due to shingles.

Now under control, only some bad nights a month

I use to be on every heavy drug there was now only take a pill at night when pain gets bad

On gabapentin, 800x 3 times a day, I don't it's doing anything but dr said stay on it

Hi there,
Do you know why your physician wants you to stay on a medication that’s ineffective? Hopefully you don’t have any side effects from it. Shingles is awful, been there done that but didn’t have the lasting effects like you.
Good luck to you,
Jake
