funny how the same thing affects people so differently. I had no pain but was VERY itchy and had almost no rash except 2 or 3 bumps. What brought me to the dr is I sprayed the itchy spot with cortosteriod spray not realizing one of the bumps had opened and that pain made me scream the instant the spray hit my skin. Luckily I went right to the dr the next day and only had Shingles 10 days.

Did your rash go away and did you ever find out what it was? My prayers are with you for all you're going through, sweetheart.
A few weeks ago when I was in the hospital with severe anemia and pneumonia I had a flareup of shingles. Luckily I caught it right away and told the nurse. It cleared up within a few days of using Acyclovir cream. They had to move the person in the room with me because she was on IgG therapy. Anyone entering my room had to wear a plastic apron. At least I got a private room and I told the nurses that should teach them not to mess with me. LOL
