The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

j'kath, sorry to hear about the shingles. My DD had them at age 14, no fun then either!! Did the Dr. give you a steriod med? That was about the only thing that really helped her with the pain. You really need to take it as easy as possible for the next few weeks as you might think you are better, but you will flair it up if trying to do to much too soon. Make sure you have someone rub salve on the site also, it will help!!

I have had the Shingles

Not pleasant. Mine was around my waist...more on the right side. VERY
painful and long lasting.

They did leave small scars. Scars better than pain. Some I have heard experience pain for many months. It does last long.

You are not alone. It is more common that we think. There is a vacine to prevent...very expensive and most plans do not cover. HORRIBLE stuff.
