Avatar n tn I would try them while awake first thing at first before sleeping with them on or rest your body every few days . For me the shingles would just flare up for a few days real bad and thats when I needed the patches or lyrica afterwards in between flare ups I was ok . Hey were all different what works for one might not for you . They know opiates cuase defeciencies in hormones , over stimulation even cancer in some while others have no problems .

Avatar n tn Is it possible for a ten year old to have shingles without a rash??? He has been unwell for nearly a month now, but has had extremely sore neck front and back,chest and shoulders for about 2weeks. We have had two lots of blood tests all coming back normal. He is in excruiating pain mainly in the evening, he cant even stand water falling on his neck when having a shower and he definately wont let me touch it. He cries himself to sleep because he is in so much pain...
Avatar m tn I have had shingles at least 2 times. My regular doctor diagnosed me the first time and my dermatologist the second time. Unless you have ever had shingles the pain is almost impossible to describe. I took Valtrex both times and percocet and vicidon. The first time I had shingles was the worst. I had the rash that started on my spine and followed the nerve. I could not stand for anything to touch the area...not the rash as much as the area around the rash...I missed 3 weeks of work.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with shingles in the left ear on Monday. I have been put on percocet for the pain and valtrex for the virus. I have yet to see a rash. I have been in excruciating pain since monday and it didn't stay in just the ear. The pain is behind my left eye left ear down my neck in my left shoulder and down my left arm. Today the pain isn't as bad as it has been but I itch and itch all over on the left side of my face and head. Its like a burning itch.
182493 tn?1348056515 You would need lumber, sheet rock, shingles, and etc for the major supplies…these are the equivalent of the bodies need for protein, carbohydrates, and fats. How would you hold everything together?…nuts and bolts, nails, and screws—these are the equivalent of the bodies need for vitamins and minerals.
522415 tn?1242941355 Look, I am taking Opana ER, Percocet, and Lyrica for pain and that doesnt include all the other meds for all the other symptoms... It is alot and I dont take it lightly. I take it to try and survive this ****. Dont let the non-understanding people make you feel guilty or bad about taking the meds that YOU think you need. Nobody else is in your body but YOU!

Avatar f tn Also, as Tuck pointed out, your Percocet is not for nerve pain, it's for other pain, as you've discovered it hasn't done much to help you with your neuropathy. There's a big difference. As in most cases when people have more than one type of pain, such as arthritis, DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease), etc. your Doctor will add the Gabapentin, Lyrica, etc. as an additional medication so that both types of pain are being addressed.
Avatar f tn i had buzzing in my ear for last year it is my left ear last year in august i got a shingles shot then the thundering lighting or someone hitting with the hammer in my head i get dizzy spells but i do not faint then i throw up they gave me naproxen it has not help the doctor said i was having withdrawals from the Percocet not ttrue it would have stop right then the throwing up come in i am besides myself becoming more more
Avatar n tn If you read on the forum about Shingles without the rash, you will find that you can have a debilitating pain running along a nerve for years... shingles. You might want to have your doctor check you for shingles and perhaps try an antiviral med. to see if it takes some of the pain away. Not saying you have shingles, could be neuralgia (Gabapentin works on that or Lyrica). Only thing I know helps shingles is the antiviral. Hope this information is helpful.
335728 tn?1331418012 Hey Rena - It sounds to me like shingles. Do not be fooled, you DO NOT have to have the actual rash to have shingles. Hallmarks of shingles are severe pain and the area to remain on one side (if you said it hurt on BOTH shoulders, it would not be shingles - the virus never crosses the midline). Picture your innerbody as a tree with branches outstretching. These brances are nerve endings. When shingles occurs, it affects say, one tree limb, and all the branches off of that limb.
Avatar m tn Perscribed Percocet (only drug that works) Went back to Dr about 3 days later, suggested might have rashless shingles, Dr agreed & prescribed Acyclovir. 12 pills a day for 7 days.
1485281 tn?1287951992 So he gave me zoiverex (oral) and percocet for pain. By Sunday 2/13/2011 I had a terrible rash on my torso, called the Dr. and he said it was an allergic reaction. I had taken the same meds before so why am I allergic.
Avatar f tn I have buzzing in my ear this has been going on for along time I know they said I need a earing aid but to expensive the insurance will not covered but what I am most worried about is the really bad pressure in my head like somebody hitting on my head with a hammer I feel that I am going to faint I have already gone to the doctors and the ers they did mri and scat scan blood work nothing came up everything look
922972 tn?1243988728 I have been bouncing between Percocet and Vicodin for years. My doctor wants me to wean off of the Vicodin, but there is no backup plan (I am taking Gabapentin, but it doesn't cut through the pain). We're stuck. And I’m scared. She recommended that I reach out to other resources. Could I have had shingles with a rash, no lesions, that lasted 5 years and pain for 8 years? Is there a way to determine if that is the case? I'm absolutely at the end of my rope.
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to meds such as acyclovir which is for shingles, bactrim, sustiva, atripla. I don't take any pain meds at all for anything. My liver was failing because of medications for HIV and anti depressants at the time of the biopsy. Is it possible that because of the liver failure the drugs weren't metabolized at all?
Avatar m tn I had a nuerostimulator installed twice for nerve damage in my chest from shingles over twenty years ago. I am about to have stimulator No. 3 installed with a lead down to my femoral nerve in hopes of keeping the use of narcotics to a minimum, as I now take 10 mg/ 4xaday of methadone and 10mg/3xaday of Percocet . Stress triggers a lot of my pain as I am now n a workers comp claim and my wife and mother in law are dealing with serious health issues also at this time.
1252901 tn?1271135468 Do you think it's some kind of inflamation? Could I take ibuprofin with the percocet? I have a physical therapy appt. for my ribs in a few days, and a doctor appt. in a couple weeks.
Avatar m tn Isn't shingles nerve pain? I am not a doctor by any means but search this site for shingles and you will get some insight. I was thinking Lyrica or something like that. Maybe I am totally off base. Medhelp search is your friend as well as Google itself.
Avatar f tn I hope you can find something to helps. My son had shingles at age 11 and it was really hard for him and us to watch him hurt. If you have not been given other options, perhaps a new doc is in order.
Avatar n tn Referred to neurologist who states I have neuralgia, usually associated with shingles - never had shingles. Currently taking Prempro, Protonix, Vioxx, Trileptal, Flexeril, Percocet, Actiq & using Lioderm patches. Never know when attack of pain will manifest itself or how severe. Pain can be totally debilitating and at times would be willing to donate left breast to anyone willing to take it. Never experiences such pain in my life.
Avatar m tn Perscribed Percocet (only drug that works) Went back to Dr about 3 days later, suggested might have rashless shingles, Dr agreed & prescribed Acyclovir. 12 pills a day for 7 days.
Avatar m tn 3 pills for 3days, 2 pills for 3days, 1 pill for 3days), and Acyclovir 800mg (1 tab, 5 times per day, for 7 days). I am having a couple of skin reactions above and beyond the shingles "pox." First, I am developing little pin point spots of blood showing up all over my body (not in the Pox areas). They are tiny, pore sized, blood blisters(?) the size of a pin *****. They are smooth, plump, not itchy, bright red when they appear, fading to dark red over days.
Avatar n tn My husband is in his early 30's, and was diagnosed with Shingles in Novmber of 2002. It was located on his head and did get into his left eye. After the initial outbreak, he was still suffering from post-herpetic neuralgia. A few weeks ago, he was given Tegretol in an effort to get him off Percocet, which he's been on since November. After about 2 weeks of the Tegretol, the dose increased to 1000mg per day. The very next day after the first 1000mg day, he awoke with itchy ears.
1485281 tn?1287951992 I had the shingles a year ago but it started out with a rash. Anyway he sent me home with oral zovirex and percocet for the pain. By Sunday 2/13/11 I had a rash all over my torso, it was warm to the touch. Called the Dr. and he said it was probably a reaction to the meds. I had taken these same meds before so I didn't understand, by Wednesday 2/15/11 I couldn't even sit up, Mmy whole body ached and I had chills and fever for the next 3 days.
Avatar m tn You should be on some kind of long term patch such as Fentanyl which continues to give good pain relief for three days then change to new one as well as short term such as Percocet for break through pain for when you have done things that cause more pain than the patch will not help totally. There is also Facet joint denervation that can be done to control pain.
215220 tn?1191460464 Well, they gave me more pain meds, stronger this time because vicoden wasn't working anymore. Thank god for Percocet. Got a scrip for Percocet and steroids plus Amoxocillen. Been taking them for two weeks. Things felt better for about 10 days. But as soon as I ran out of steroids and pain meds the pain started to come back. While finishing the antibiotic the pain on the right side came back and stayed. It has been constant.
Avatar f tn My name is Brenda and I have been on Suboxone for about 8 months now for an addiction to percocet. I just went to my ortho doc and he prescribed me tramadol for bursitis. I dont know if I can mix the 2 sub and tram and I not sure if I should even start taking them to begin with. Can anyone give me some advice about what I should do?
