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!
