I recently had shingles that involved the trigeminal nerve. It affected my ear, jaw and tongue. Most of the problem has resolved but the tongue is still "sore, burning, numb...can't really describe it and my jaw feels like I have a really bad toothache. Besides that my chin gets a tingling and really bad pain. :confused: I'm taking 200 mg of Ultram in the day and 600 mg gabapentin at night. Yet the soreness persists. Is there a rinse or something else I should be doing to alleviate this persistent problem? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Doctors tell me this is post herpetic neuralgia and it could last for months or years.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
