Secondary outcomes included: the reduction in the score of the McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ), which was administered by a psychologist for the multidimensional definition of pain in the individual patient [39-41]; the response rate (VAS score decrease by at least 2 points during treatment); the percentage of incident cases of PHN (defined as the presence of pain of any grade 3 months after enrolment – data obtained from the nesting cohort study); the total pain burden during the 12-month follow-up of the cohort study; finally, the incidence of treatment-related serious adverse events during treatment (grade 3 or higher according to the WHO scale) [42]. One study demonstrated that the mean level of serum nitric oxide in people with migraine decreased by 31% after five acupuncture treatments (P value < 0.05) (Gündüztepe 2014).

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is nerve pain (neuralgia) that persists after an eruption of herpes has been compensated. One systematic review of randomised controlled trials comparing acupuncture with carbamazepine for trigeminal neuralgia found acupuncture to be as effective as drug treatment, but to cause fewer unwanted effects.(Liu 2010) In single randomised controlled trials, electroacupuncture was found not to be effective for chronic painful neuropathy in general (Penza 2011); acupuncture was found to be more effective than cobamamide for peripheral neuropathy due to chemotherapy (Xu 2010); acupuncture plus acupoint injection was found to be more effective than carbamazepine for greater occipital neuralgia (Pan 2008); and neither acupuncture nor amitriptyline were found to be more effective than placebo for peripheral neuropathy due to HIV infection, but acupuncture was associated with reduced attrition and mortality rates(Shlay 1998; Shiflett 2011). • In countries where preservative-free intrathecal methylprednisolone is available, it may be considered in the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia.
