Thanks for the sympathy Gabby.

The rash is clearing up and it never itched just burned so. However, the pain is really lingering and it is by far one of the worst cases of pain I have endured. Everything people say about the pain is true.

Had chicken pox 2 times so here is hoping the shingles do not follow the same route. Have meds in case I feel a flare up.

Love, Maggie

I need to change my vote. I was in the "considered it" group but now I'm in the "have had it" group. Got a notice from my insurance that it's now covered and in I went. Smile

Food Intolerances : Too many to list

I have had small patches of shingles about 2x a year for years. I get the hyperanesthesia along the nerve, and should know it;s coming, but always forget that's what it is until the sores appear. The patches are really small, so they haven't pushed me to get the vaccine, or do anything else about it. Maybe I should think about it.

Getting a little late on this - I had the Shingles vaccine while on Entocort and I had no reaction that I can recall, beyond some soreness where the needle went in.

So sorry about the shingles. I know someone who had pain shots where the shingles were b/c the shingles pain was so excrutiating. It did remove the chances that the pain would be permanent. What an awful disease!

I have had small patches of it many times. Not for a long time now, (fingers crossed - can't find the symbol!) but always on my lower body on the insides of my knees, my butt, genitals, hips.

The patches are painful, but they really are small so not unbearable. I haven't had the shot.
