I have very small outbreak of rashes but pain in right buttock and down my leg has been terrible too. taking Lyrica for a month and "may" be subsiding.Going to Dr. again to see if an increase in dose will help

I underwent treatment for Hepatitis C -interferon +ribavarin. Is there any indication that this treatment can compromise the immune system as I have had several attacks of Shingles since the treatment ended.

hi michael, i have been through the same experiance i am having a bad attack at the moment these are happening more often and stress and illness brings them on. as my treatment was 3 years ago and did not work,my shingles is getting worse. it took 6 months and loads of testing to find out what it was. i thought i was going crazy.i was given tablets which made me ill so i stoped taking them. i am going to try different ones as my life seems to be put on hold every 2 months for 2-3 at a time. so your answer is yes but you might have to push for treatment. jo
