So sorry to hear this Jkath. Now I know what shingles are I had no idea they were so painful. My question is why so many people get chicken pox when they were kids. Is it because they were not vaccinated when they were young? All I know that going back and forth overseas as a kid in the 50s and early 60s I would get every vaccination known to man. Which is why I developed a phobia to needles as you can see in the phobia threads.

The chickenpox vaccine hasn't been around all that long. I believe my pediatrician first started using it when I'd already had my second child, who was born in '95.
But, there are a lot of people who won't have their kids vaccinated, such as those who won't give their kids the MMR vac, as it has been linked to autism.

Off topic note, I just heard on the news tonight they have definitively proven no link to autism with any childhood vaccine. Finally!

Looks like you are keeping busy jkath, are you feeling ok?

Shingles

The only way that you will not get the Shingles is if you have never had chicken pox. The chicken pox virus lays dormant until something sets it off (ergo) Shengles. However there is a vaccine for Shingles. Expensive really but well worth the money considering the fact that Shingles can be sooooo painful for such a long time.

Technically true, BUT you can get them concurrently. My husband never had chickenpox as a child but got shingles. Clearly he got chickenpox at the same time.
