Do you want the bad news?

You sound like you got it bad like it did. Mine ached for about six months.

There really is nothing like a bad case of the shingles. I had a solid scab about a square foot over my left shoulder.

Be thankful you didn't get it on your face. It can make you blind.

Mine was eighteen years ago. I still have the scars.

Don't want to scare you too much, but I believe it was a precursor for my lymphoma.

Mines bigger than that.  Constant headache, stomach pain, can’t sleep (it’s 3:30 am) and more.  Only one kidney, and it wasn’t performing well before this.  Birthday in 4 days, and it will be memorable for all the wrong reasons.
PS.  Hope you’re OK?

Did you not get chicken pox as a child ?

My mum got shingles. She was in her 80s. It did look very nasty.

He must have - you can only get shingles if you have had chickenpox.  The chickenpox virus stays dormant in nerve endings for the rest of your life....but sometimes becomes active later on as shingles.

It is unusual to get shingles at a young age though. Most people get shingles in there 70s or 80s I thought.

It's much more common at 60+ - but is possible at any age.

I've never had chickenpox.  Should I get the shingles shot?

IKNWC but yesterday we took my 95 year old dad out for lunch in the village he grew up in.  Had a lovely time and we called in to see his 92 year old sister in her care home on the way back to his care home.  For the first time ever, I think, they both gave each other a farewell kiss (we arent a demonstrative family) - it brought a tear to the eye and you could almost see both thinking "this will be the last time".  My aunt wasnt well yesterday and I am worried about her.  We are flying off to Aus next Monday to arrive on Christmas morning - only for a 5 week holiday this time but next time it will be permanent.  I'm wondering how the hell I am going to leave them permanently. Or what to do if they leave us permanently in the interim.

The aunt is now waiting on an ambulance (I am spitting at the lax care in their "care" home!) They've given her a 10 hour delay - she's not deemed bad enough for a 999 (breathing laboured, lots of phlegm etc) so when the ambulance comes I am going to meet her in A&E as I only live 5 minutes away.  She should have someone there to hold her hand!

Not bad enough!  A very elderly lady with breathing problems.  Poor old soul and poor you too.  Not an easy time especially as you are to leave for Australia very soon.  How is your aunt now?

He was in plain sight. It was I that was lost but now I'm found, I was blind but now I see.
