Shingles (12)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2007-03-20 02:27 ID:NwlVdfzW

I'm almost positive I have shingles. I have most of the symptoms. I'm going to the doctor as soon as I can, and I know it clears up within a month or so, but it still sucks. I'm kinda tired of the discomfort.

Anyone ever had shingles who can ease my mind or discomfort in some way?

It's related to the chicken pox, and having the chicken pox increases your chances of getting it later in life. I had the pox, which explains why I have shingles now...

Yeah I've seen a very bad case of shingles. It happens when your immune system is very low..usually when you've been sick a long period of time. You're covered in sores full of puss and they itch. Get it treated early. It's really easy to treat, just get some antibiotics and it should clear up within days.

Go to your doctor as soon as possible. After the first few days the medication for it does not work. Then again it might be some other kind of skin problem rather than shingles.

Stress caused shingles to come up in both me and my father. If you've had exceptional stress lately, well, there's your problem. Avoid it unless you want to have shingles again. Learn to chill.

Interestingly enough, high stress = lowers immune system.

Hence people get sick a lot more when they're stressed.

Doctor said it's not worth antibiotics, it's basically cleared up.
By the way, I have athletic heart rate and blood pressure, and I don't do crap.

Woo! \o/
