Thank you A.O. Your patient suffers from the Post herpetic Syndrome which is indeed a very distressing condition. In the head region, it almost always follows the path of the GB channel, mainly because this syndrome is characterized by excessively exuberant liver Yang and damp-heat in the same time. You may need a great deal of patience and an excellent needle technique so that your treatments may cure this old patient. Try to use the one needle above-two needles below technique described in my work at:
Use: Sj-5 in deep needling to begin with
Then: G-20/ 19/ 14 and points surrounding the eye
Then: G-34/ 38/ 41/ 43
Don't tonify the kidneys at this stage, only after the pain is relieved.
Hope this helps.
