Anyone had Shingles before?

I got diagnosed with shingles yesterday. Fun times for all.

Anyone had it before?

It hurts like a MOFO. The best part is it's only on one side of your body, as it follows the nerve path through the body. :s

Re: Anyone had Shingles before?

At first I thought you were talking about the shingles that you'd find on a roof or something. I had to look it up, because I didn't know what it was. Apparently it's a herpes-like symptom caused by a dormant virus left behind from the Chickenpox. That sucks, man. Sounds painful. I hope it doesn't recur.

Yeah that's what it is. Apparently if you don't get it treated immediately you can have permanent nerve damage for the rest of your life :shock: . Hopefully I took care of it in time. I look like a fucken zombie right now.

As you can see it only attacks one side of your body.

It's basically something that re-accures from Chickenpox.

Holyshit I didn't know that. That's probably why I got it. I've been stressing out majorly lately because some dumbass deposited $2,500 of fraudulant funds into my bank account. The bank decided to freeze my account so I don't have access to any money right now. That happened last Monday. I've been down to the bank several times and they can't do anything about it until the bank's Fraud Department contacts me, which they haven't done yet . I've been stressing because I have all these bills that need to be paid (including car and insurance payment) that fucken can't be because my account has been frozen!! .

Re: Anyone had Shingles before?

My son had it. *Scared the shit out of me when I saw it.

The part that pissed me off the most is that we took him to emergergency (late at night) and the doctor scolded at me saying that I'm wasting hospital resources on something as pitly as shingles. *If i was as educated as her or if I've seen it before then I guess I wouldn't have bothered taking him there and waiting four bloody hours... * :x

work to live
