I just said the same thing to Hopsino. I'm sorry you missed the window. I made it just in time, but I suffered on and off for years with pain in that area. It's bad. While we all HATE big pharma, there are some drugs that actually do work. This is one of them. The results of not taking this drug is exactly as you describe. I've know of dozens now who did not take this drug and suffered for years and years.
I absolutely hate when I tell someone to go the pharma route, but there are exceptions. Only someone who has suffered the agony of shingles will ever know.
I just wanted to let you know that I supported your post. Thank you.
