Pain in arm after Herpes zoster

My mother 76 y/o suffered from herpes zoster 30 days back.Blisters have now dried but still suffers from continuous pain & itching for 24 hrs in right arm from shoulder to thumb & fingers .It started WITH itching in right shoulder followed by blisters from right shoulder to right thumb in a linear fashion.No allopathic medicine was given for Herpes. She is taking Rhus Tox 30 thrice a day from 3rd day of disease till date.Blisters have gone leaving itching & pain. She is also taking allopathic medicines for High BP. Doctor has also prescribed pain killer tab. PREGABALIN for pain but it is of not much relief to her.Scratching worsens the pain and applying pressure releaves the pain. She patiently tolerates the pain without any annoyance & has hope for relief from pain.She also suffered some mental problem 8 months back which was diagnosed as Dementia???.All allopathic medicines except Tab Donep have been discontinued since last 4 months as condition became perfect.Pse help her from pain & itching.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give her Kreosotum 30 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over a week. Please don't give Rhus Tox.

Dear Dr.kadwa,
My mother started taking Kreosotum 30 w.e.f. 17 oct for 3 days i.e. upto 19th oct. On 21 oct evening she was very much disturbed,was feeling more pain in arm particularly from elbow to thumb in affected hand i.e. right hand.Became apprehensive that blisters will again appear but nothing such happened next morning & till now except development of slight swelling from right hand thumb to base of thumb in palm to wrist area.

At present,itching has gone but there is no change in the pain in right arm.The intensity of pain is same as was before 21st oct. evening.She is very much disturbed with this continuous throbbing pain in right arm but tolerating it patiently.

Doctor,One more thing that I forgot to mention in my previous communication is that she actually stopped taking Rhus tox 30 w.e.f. 10 oct and she was given Variolinium 30 for 3 days w.e.f. 11 oct and this medicine was stopped on 13 oct. No change in pain or itching felt from 10 oct till she started Kreosotum 30 on 17 oct.

As advised, I will again submit feedback one week after stopping Kreosotum i.e. on 27 th oct. However pse advise some medicine to releave her pain ,if deemed fit ,at this juncture.regards.

Dear doctor,
After taking Arsenic album 30 w.e.f. 24 oct to 27 oct , she is now feeling a slight relief in pain.Itching has already stopped since 20th oct as I reported in my last post.Her sleep has also improved.
She still can not touch affected anywhere in right arm.

Not able to tolerate normal tap water on the arm while taking a bath or otherwise also.
However,feels no problem with tap water any where else on body.

Keeps the affected arm covered with saree that she wears or holds right thumb with
left hand whenever feels more pain in the affected arm due to movements in routine
household works.

She believes that it will take another 2-3 months for cure as was told by allopathic
doctor which she visited initially .

Pain killer tab. PREGABALIN is still continue.

Feels Pain in right half palm region i.e. base of right thumb & right index finger &
onwards upto right shoulder.

No pain in remaining half of right palm.

No pain on reverse of the right palm.

I will submit feedback on 3rd Nov also i.e.after seven days of stopping Ars Alb.regards & thanks a lot for most needed response.

If there is no relief in her pain by 3rd Nov., please give her Pulsatilla 30 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over a week.

Dear doctor,
Thanks a lot for timely reply.Just bothering to bring following to your kind notice :-

#She is now feeling quite a relief in pain only 'from shoulder to elbow'in right arm

#But the intensity as well as continuity of pain in right half palm region i.e. base of right thumb to right index finger is same. However,there is no pain in remaining half of right palm & reverse of the right palm.

#She is even not able to pick up a mug full of water with right hand while taking a bath.

#Feels pain from wrist region onwards but no pain in elbow region.

In view of above condition, Pse advise, if she be given Pulsatilla 30 twice for 3 day or otherwise.regards.

If there is no improvement on its own within few days, please repeat Arsenicum Album 30 for three days. If that doesn't help give Pulsatilla 30.
 
kadwa 5 years ago

Dear doctor,
I'm very pleased to intimate that after a repeat dose of Ars.album 30 w.e.f. 8th Nov to 10th Nov, her condition is gradually improving.

Earlier she was not able to tolerate even touch in the affected right arm but now she feels 50% relief in pain.

Fomentation with warm cloth gives instant relief from pain whereas she could not tolerate it earlier.She is doing fomentation with warm cloth thrice daily and feeling relief.

Relief from pain is comparatively more in upper arm i.e. from shoulder to elbow than from elbow to thumb.

She still feels more pain in the region of right thumb,base of right thumb & right index finger than any where else in the affected right arm.

There is mild swelling with pain in right wrist area since last 25 days

She is still taking allopathic painkiller tab.

Pse advise ,whether to give Pulsatilla 30 or otherwise.regards.
