I have had shingles since the second week of January The symptoms are down to a swelling on my right leg. I have to use a cane to get around. Pain is throughout the day, it’s hard to get comfortable to sleep. Wondering if anyone has found any supplements or medications that help. Doctors have been no help allied from prescribing gabapentin.

          @EddieM Not expensive $7-8 for maybe 100. Do you have the rash still? We’re you diagnosed by doc?
