Alternatively, you can reduce your risk of post-herpetic neuralgia by having the shingles vaccination to try to prevent an attack of shingles occurring. However, antiviral medication will often be given early during an episode of shingles to help reduce the risk of complications such as post-herpetic neuralgia. These will often be medications originally intended to treat depression (antidepressants) or epilepsy (anticonvulsants), but have since been found to also be effective in relieving nerve pain.

As post-herpetic neuralgia generally doesn’t respond to standard painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, alternative medications will need to be prescribed.

Medication can ease the symptoms of post-herpetic neuralgia, although they may not relieve the pain completely. Medication can ease the symptoms of post-herpetic neuralgia, although they may not relieve the pain completely. But occasionally the nerves do not heal completely and symptoms last for several years or permanently.

Read about living with long-term pain for information and tips on how to cope. Living with post-herpetic neuralgia can be very difficult as it can interfere with your ability to carry out certain daily activities, such as dressing and bathing, and can lead to further problems such as extreme tiredness (fatigue), sleeping difficulties and depression. The pain has been described as burning, stabbing, shooting, aching or throbbing. The main symptom of post-herpetic neuralgia is continuous nerve pain in an area previously affected by shingles. It’s not clear why some people with shingles develop post-herpetic neuralgia, but increasing age, pain in the early (prodromal) stage of a shingles attack, and severe pain throughout an episode of shingles are all associated with an increased risk of the condition.
