My Mom, 82 years old, recently got over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shingles</span>
. However, she still has the residual pain. The shingles
outbreak was on her back, right side, around shoulder.
Her doctor gave her hydroco (which she doesn't like because it made her dizzy) and
subsequently Neruotin which gave her really bad diarrhea. He had discussed the possiblity of a cortisone shot and
she finally said, yes because the pain was so bad. He referred her to a pain clinic.
