    Gary, glad to hear you're doing better my friend! A bout with the shingles is nothing to scoff at, 5 weeks is an eternity for that type of pain. I hope it's finally over.



    I want to get the shingles vaccine but in order to do so I need to stop my Xeljanz and other arthritis meds for 8 weeks until it's out of my system. So i'll need to bein more pain than I usually am in order to avoid even more pain down the road with the shingles. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Gary, I'm glad you are a bit better. I found when I had shingles that I'd have a day or two of feeling better, so just when I thought it was almost over the pain would return. Also found that a heating pad helped a LOT. Now that crap is just a hateful memory but I have scars on my arm from the blisters to remind me.

    And I'd like to add... to those who think "I have had shingles; I don't need no stinkin' shot.", my sister-in-law has had them THREE times in the past 5 years. Get the shots.

    Status update;

    Days, when vertical, hardly much pain..just some incessant itching
    I'd really like to acquire a tiny pitchfork, jamb it deep in my ear, and turn it, for an hour or so

    Evenings, my poor lady
    About twice in the night, I wake, lay there wincing, begin to moan, get up, med up with the dropper, and sit in the chair 'til I wake myself from snoring.
    Then trudge back to bed.

    I'd like to think it's slowly going away...

    On the CBD oil;
    Love the GoGreen 250 mg oil
    Sought out the 1000mg. More is better, right?
    It wasn’t available at the local outlet.
    Got a different, recommended, brand in 1000mg.
    Healthy Roots.

    My lady mentioned it made her feel a bit numb, emotionally.
    I shrugged, used it.
    Noticed it didn’t kill the pain any better than GoGreen 250.
    Also, after a few days, began to examine my own state of mind, as I hadn’t had my usual ‘ain’t life great!’ feeling.
    Thought it might be this nagging shingle crud bringing me down.
    Not so.
    It’s the frigging 1000mg oil.
    Not definitely sure if the culprit is the brand or the potency.
    But,
    I going back to GoGreen 250 mg.
    Less than half the cost, less the psych drag, just as effective on the pains.

    Very little discomfort now

    Days, I hardly feel the niggling pain on the side of my face

    Nights, it’s there, but bearable
    This post herpetic neuralgia is finally waning

    Not taking ibuprofen, nor hemp oil

    Been about three months
    Guess I’m right on schedule

    Now, my second toe, the one I broke while installing a cabin window two years ago

    ..is killing me

    Rubbed some balm on it
    no result

    I had the "old " shot,I've known many people that have had it more than once that neuropathy is brutal.
    Does anyone know if its necessary to get the new vaccine if you've had the old one?

    Yes it is. I had the old shot several years ago and when the new one came out my doctor and my pharmacist advised me to get it. Its a 2 shot thing. You have the first one and then 2 months later the 2nd one. I had a horrible case of chicken pox when I was 5 so my doctor said I needed it.
