Anyone else have to deal with shingles?

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Of all things, I had an outbreak of shingles.
Not a severe one. Small patch on the back of my leg, along with that "viral" feeling I get-very tired and draggy.
Got started on the valacyclovir and today-back to work.

Anybody else out there have to deal with shingles? This is my third outbreak-I have had the shingles vaccine but it is 50% effective and apparantly I'm not in the 50%. Supposedly shingles means your body's immune system is down-but I've been feeling really good and taking care of myself the past 2 weeks.

Reading the "Mind over Body" articles on SP. Good information. And I did do my 15 minutes today, but I may not have time to log it in-time to go to work!

    Yes, I have had this once.

I did not realize what it was -- and I am a nurse.

Luckily, the medication did the trick.

hope you feel better soon!
