Whaaaaaaaaa???? Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, poor Jnette!! I'm sooooooooooo sorry!! I've heard it can be VERY painful! Have you seen your PCP??? You'll have some at-home time, right??
This really sux!
No, haven't seen my PCP yet, but going first thing tomorrow. I noticed some bumps, burning, and itching yesterday.. actually on Sun. afternoon, but thought it was from a little caterpiller which had crawled down my neck while I was sitting out back under the apple tree....
Yesterday I started notincing s few little bumps and more itching.. still thought it was from the caterpiller. By last noc, I was REALLY itching along with burning, more bumps spreading.. but still mostly back of neck and right upper shoulder area. This morning reddened patchy areas of bumps, still on same side. Itching and burning would subside, didn't really bother me much during the day as I worked, when I got home I noticed it more. Still spreading.. all down right side of back, shoulder neck, and now even to the right scapula area and near the right armpit as well.
So I guess tomorrow I'll schlepp my shingles to my doc and see about WHASSUP WITH THIS???
I don't GET sick... remember???
I don't TAKE time off from work, remember???
And no, my immune system is FINE... and no, I have NOT been stressed... I've been the picture of contentedness out there under my apple tree with my trickling fountain...... :chuckle
