Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM

Shingles or Zoster is long term sequel of Varicella Zoster infection. Some times after episode of zoster pain may continue to persist which is also called as Postherpetic Neuralgia. The pain in shoulder blades and lower back, you are having is because of this neuralgia. You are also having complaints of stress, sweats, inability to work, cold sweats etc. symptoms. These symptoms may occur due to depression. Mild form of depression may be a sequel of viral infection. I will advise you to visit a Psychiatrist for expert opinion.
