I've had shingles and did a course of antiviral medication at the start of the outbreak, which may have reduced my risk for PHN...at least hopefully. I haven't had another outbreak in 4-5 years, but am worried it could happen. I plan on getting the new vaccine in January.

I have suffered from this.  Try increasing your vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C.  My vitamin D was very low at the time.  I got my vitamin D, zinc and C levels up with supplements and noticed great improvement.  Takes several weeks though. 

Here's a study on the vitamin C helping with it.  


Hope this helps.
