Brief Answer: Herpes zoster Detailed Answer: Hello You might be suffering from Herpes Zoster. It is a condition affecting the nerves and usually affects the nerves of a particular part of body leading to unilateral burning sensation and pain. I would like to know, do you have only burning sensation or is there development of lesions too ? Usually Herpes zoster is associated with development of rash and pain. Let me know, so I can help you better. Thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for follow up. Sometimes Zoster may present only with unilateral pain. I usually prescribe capsule gabapentene and pregabaline to my patients and they get good relief with treatment. Please meet your doctor and discuss regarding these medications. Thank you
