Posted on Fri, 11 May 2018
Question: I have had shingles twice and had treatment and the shingles vaccine. My shingles were on the left side of my body, under the breast and around my back to the spine, I now have nerve pain, but it has now moved to my right breast and is extremely painful.

I fell and broke 3 ribs, 5, 6, &7, also my sturnem and was given percoset for it, but that was over two 1/2 months ago.

Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
Are you having blisters along with pain on the right breast?
What is the duration of pain on the right breast?
For pain I would recommend you to take tablet tramadol 50 mg twice daily and tablet amitryptyline 25 mg at bedtime.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.

no blisters anywhere, just real hot stabbing pains like a needle around the aerola , I'm wondering if this was from the broken ribs on my right side. sometimes the pain comes and goes but today has been pretty much all the time.
