Shingles-- not just for the roof

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I had always assumed Shingles was something of an older persons malady.  Hahahahaha no.

That was until I noticed a few bumps on my back one night in the bath.  I assumed another allergic reaction, I am allergic to everything.

Next day the bumps hurt.  A lot. I also felt like crap.  No- I did not connect them.

Another day passes.  More bumps and a strange pain.  I took a picture emailed it to my doctor-- best idea ever, seriously.  and I have Shingles- he puts me on HERPES medicine.  I know that Shingles and Chicken Pox are all Herpes viruses it is just really embarrassing to get my script for herpes meds filled at the local Walgreen's.

They hurt.  A lot. Not cool.
