I have treated quite a few cases of people suffering the Long Term complications of SHINGLES in my clinic. I have won some cases & lost some.
Shingles in the older generation can resolve naturally without complications, although around half of those over 50yrs who have shingles experience continuing nerve pain called post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN).
My most recent shingles client was a long term sufferer of the nerve pain and itch in one spot on her shoulder after shingles. She had been suffering for years, said it drove her mad and no one had been able to fix it. The only reason she came to my clinic and tried the Emmett Technique was because one of her friend told her she had to, lol.
I'll admit :) It took me a few treatment sessions of trying different variations of emmett moves BUT! after her last treatment we got almost a week and a half before her complications started coming back. This was the first time in years she had no pain at all.
I am hoping that now we have changed the pain and itch once, that after this most recent treatment, fingers and toes crossed, we may get rid of it completely.
But, if it does come back it is still going to be great because we now we know how to make it go away again, and again and again. Having pain free weeks would still be wonderful anytime :)
What is Shingles (PHN) Postherpetic neuralgia?
The write up below on Shingles can be found @ http://www.nhs.uk/Conditi…/Shingles/Pages/Complications.aspx
Postherpetic neuralgia is the most common complication of shingles. It's not clear exactly how many people are affected, but some estimates suggest that as many as one in five people over 50 could develop postherpetic neuralgia as the result of shingles.
Postherpetic neuralgia can cause severe nerve pain (neuralgia) and intense itching that persists after the rash and any other symptoms of shingles have gone. Types of pain experienced by people with postherpetic neuralgia include: constant or intermittent burning, aching, throbbing, stabbing, or shooting pain
Allodynia – where you feel pain from something that should not be painful, such as changes in temperature or the wind
Hyperalgesia – where you are very sensitive to pain Postherpetic neuralgia sometimes resolves after around three to six months, although it can last for years and some cases can be permanent. It can be treated with a number of different painkilling medicines.
