Nitehawk yes lots of unknowns. I am just glad that I only have one rash. Others have had lots Just know the meds are working and happy for that. They do tend to make me sleepy I know that. I see the doc in 6 weeks so will see what he says about the shot. I was watching the nationwide race and fell asleep half way thru and missed the ending. Anyone watch and can tell me who won.

Interesting conflict here. My Doc told me there is a vaccination that may or may not work if you've already had them.
I was also told that once you have had shingles you are likely to get them again.
I do know of someone who got them every Spring and she got the shot and has not had an occurrence since.

Who to believe? Tells me there is a lot of unknown out there.

When my friend had the shingles a couple of months ago She was told they could come back and she should get the vaccine for Shingles which she did. Since mine is a mild case not sure if I will see about the shot but will ask my doc when I go back to see him

That's what my Dr. told me way back then. At least they didn't actually meet with each other in the circle. Almost, but not quite. Mr. Dr. told me it is extremely rare to get shingles the second time. That's good news for all of us.

I'm sorry to hear about you having shngles. My husband had them a few years back so I know of the pain you speak. I had them back in the 60's too but don't remember too much about them. I had the kind that itched. Started around my waist in a complete circle.

The doc gave me Valtrex for the shingles and Lyrica for the pain. So far I guess I am having a mild case of that. But he did say the pain would last after the rash is gone.
Gonna watch the nationwide race and relax. He did say to relax as much as possible. Stress is not good. I live with stress most days.

I had shingles back in August (read my blog post). I went thru 3 scrips of Vicadin for the pain. Worst pain of my life!
Hope you heal quickly, mine last far longer than 2 different Docs said it would.

Hi Everyone. Hope you all have a better day than me. I am not having a good day. Being treated for the shingles. One good thing is the med the doc gave me helps most of the time. Now have a major leak in the water pipe under my trailer. The one that runs all the way to the front. My grandsons are going to help fix it this afternoon I hope. Living out of gallon jugs yesterday and today is no fun
