gd evening, i had shingles & bell palsy was referred to a nuerologist, but the earliest I can see the Dr is on 10 Feb; my question is i've been having pain caused by the bell palsy & im tolerating the pain as much as I can handle because i'm scared to drink pain reliever meds
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: since I finished taking the prescribed meds for the shingles; let me take the names, give me 2 mins
