Hello @andiedeluca1949, From what I've read shingles is one of the conditions that can cause allodynia.

"Allodynia can result from several conditions. The most common causes of allodynia include diabetes, shingles, fibromyalgia and migraine headaches."

Have your doctors suggested any treatments to help with the nerve pain?

Thank you for your response. Yes, I understand that allodynia can be caused by shingles, but would it be in the same area on the body that the shingles erupted? That requires more specific information.
Thanks again.
