Hi, I have postherpetic neuralgia and I have nerve pain

Hi, I have postherpetic neuralgia and I have nerve pain off and on where my shingles rash was. But I also have various muscle aches and now I have lower abdominal pain which just started. I take Gabapentin and a lot of Ibuprofen. My question is about the abdominal pain. Do you think it could be related to the neuralgia?

Hi I am suffering with Postherpetic neauralgia after having shingles. I am looking for a herbal remedy to give relief from the burning and itching which accompanies this condition. I have recently found a site which recommends Geranium and or Lavender oil. Combining these with a base oil. putting it on the affected area and then using a warmed wheat bag I am getting some relief for up to four hours before the burning and itching returns. Is there any herbal medicine that will help to heal the nerve endings? Incidentally I am taking blood thinners and blood pressure medication.
