Pain After Shingles
An outbreak of shingles usually lasts about a month. However, sometimes the pain of shingles does not go away as quickly, or disappears for a short time and then returns. This pain may last for months, and even years. Join Sarasota Memorial’s pain management specialists for a free community presentation to learn more about this condition and how you can manage it, 9-11 am July 16, classroom A&B, Sarasota Memorial Institute for Advanced Medicine, 5880 Rand Blvd., Sarasota.
