I’ve been fighting shingles now for 6 weeks and I’m still suffering from pain where the shingles blisters were located. I started 15 billion probiotics midway thru this and was feeling better. I was taking 5 billion 3 times a day. A friend coaxed me to bump it up to 20 billion. So I did this and by the 3rd day I had a rash all over my head. I’ve since stopped and the rash has gone away. I really want to go back on it, but now I’m stuck with 20 billion capsules. Any ideas on breaking these capsules in half to take half in the morning then again at night? Or should I wait til after this shingle pain goes away? I’m sure I’m in toxic overload with having fibromyalgia and type 2 diabetes. What would u suggest I do? Thank you.
Crystal, I can’t tell you that without seeing you. By “condition” I just meant the symptoms for which you were treated (“neck pain” from an acupuncture perspective can be caused by a variety of underlying imbalances). Do some people have tenderness in the areas where needles get placed? Yes. Should you be experiencing that? I don’t know. I recommend contacting your acupuncturist, who will know the acupuncture diagnosis for which you were treated and whether what you’re experiencing is cause for concern.
