I'm 23 years old and recently quit drinking for good. i went two solid years of drinking hard 3-5 days a week, sometimes on 7,8,9 day benders. all heavy alcohol types. I had a bout of shingles 15 months ago followed by brief PHN that went away. Than a few months later I started having extreme pain in my head. Stabbing, burning, zapping, itchy feeling in my scalp followed by tension type headaches. I have had that to date. Doctor's say it's ocipital neuralgia. Drinking helped take away my pain and I am currently going through some hellish symptoms I deem from giving up drinking. My questions are;

Is there a link between herpes zoster and than geting occipital neuralgia?

Is the occipital neuralgia permanent? from drinking damage? everyone tells me my nerves are shot and will never recover. I need lyrica...nerve blocks etc. but i dont wana live my life on anymore pills. Plus I also have an inner ear disorder, so i have vertigo. I just want to recover...any suggestions? I heard taking vitamin b can help heal nerves.

thanks and god bless. :angel:
