My husband started with Shingles on his head & left side of his face on Dec. 31,2010. He is taklng 600 mg. Gabapentin 3 times a day & is still having severe pain in his head & face. He also has other odd sensations on the left side of his face & his left eye & nostril. His doctor is on vacation. I know there is a post Shingles pain but how long does this really severe pain really last? He has about 5 really bad bouts in 24 hours.
