Postherpetic Neuralgia

I'm seeking someone who has had PHN. Last February (2015) I came down with an incredible case of shingles. It was on the left side of my face and made its way into my eye. The good news is I have my vision back, shingles are gone, but I have PHN. It is getting better, but I still have a LOT of pain even after 4 months. My question is how long can I expect PHN to last?

In addition, what is crazy about all this is I'm only 41, and in good health otherwise. If anyone has any experience please share it with me. Thanks!
