How long do you feel so sleepy and tired after shingles? I still have some pain but I can hardly move sometimes I am so tired and I need to go back to work. I have been off a month and now my lesions are drying I need to get back to work but I have NO energy, Along with some residual pain. How long do you go before feel "normal"?

" Have your doc check your meds. If you are taking some for pain, some of them make you tired. My shingles started July 2,2008. The blisters healed in a week but I have postherpetic neuralgia. I was only able to sleep a few hours at a time as I had the rash on my forehead and scalp and I woke up everytime I turned over. Doc gave me Ambien CR and it has been great. Sleeping a full night is amazing. I never thought that this would last so long but each day it gets a tiny bit better. "
