So The Dr Said I Had Shingles

I recently interviewed Dr. Yawn, a speaker at our recent 20th Annual Congress on Women’s Health, and she provided an update on these conditions and some clinical pearls below. Unfortunately, the patients often don’t call back but just decide this is not life-threatening, so they live with it. The clinics weren’t open because it was the weekend, so I went to the emergency room. When he answered yes, the doctor said that my husband had shingles. Ruth, a 79-year-old woman, said her shingles caused so much pain she couldn’t bear to put on her clothes or have the sheets touch her skin. The doctor told George that he had shingles and ordered some medicine for him.

I had shingles many years ago. So did my friend. Her doctor gave her a shingles shot so she won’t get it again. My doctor said by having shingles I built antibodies to it and don’t need the shot. If you’ve already had shingles, getting the shingles vaccine now can help you avoid getting it again. So get off the fence and get your shingles shot and don’t let the expense stop you. My doctor said that if you’ve been exposed, then you’re at risk for shingles. After a doctor-professor with a bad case of shingles arrives in the ER, he discovers what it’s like to be a patient in pain during this age of aggressive medicine. Even though it was the worst pain I’d ever experienced, I said 8 out of 10 so as not to sound melodramatic. He said I had classic shingles and went home.

Many Ways To Fight Shingles Pain

Shingles is not contagious, but it can still infect a person who hasn’t had chickenpox. Dr. Goldman also presented to the CDC a peer-reviewed research that showed a cost-benefit analysis of the chickenpox vaccination program. So should people who have had shingles get the vaccine to lower theirchances of getting it again? That doctor said I should absolutely have the vaccine and was very surprised at what the previous doctor had said. I had no health insurance and it came on so fast, I was not sure what to do. I had a local doctor, an elderly gentleman, look at me. She said for me to look at the lower left side of my back (which is hard to do without a mirror). She then pointed out some red blisters which I had not seen before. The eMedicineHealth doctors ask about Shingles:

I had heard of shingles, but had no idea what it was or what it meant. Even so, shingles is often difficult to diagnose in its beginning stages. Unfortunately, the early symptoms of shingles are not distinctive or specific enough to alert a doctor to what is exactly going on, said Myron J. My Mother had a terrible time with shingles a few years ago and my Great Grandmother apparently died from thepostherpetic neuralgia which is the most concerning aftermath of shingles. That shingles used to be SO rare in children that doctors would automatically look for cancer, but that it was becoming more common in kids, so they didn’t bother looking any longer. When they introduced a booster shot for 7th graders, the doctors said it was because they found that the original toddler vaccination for CP wasn’t strong enough to provide immunity through adulthood and they were finding more cases of shingles in older adults. This condition causes the pain of shingles to last for weeks or months, sometimes years. The doctors all said I had to be 60 but in hindsight that’s bullshit! Shingles is no fun, she said, and its rare complications can be serious, but it passes, and the reason to get the vaccine is to avoid postherpetic neuralgia, which affects 10 to 20 percent of people 60 and above who get shingles. Some people wouldn’t care that much if they had mild shingles and they wouldn’t pay anything to avoid it, he said, but, like you, would be scared to death about getting something that would be life-shattering. So if our doctors approve, we’ll just put shingles vaccine on the Costco list next to the paper towels. My neighbor thought they were spider bites so I went to the pharmacy and got some broad spectrum antibiotics as they were looking a bit infected. After 1- 1/2 weeks I saw a doctor and he said I had shingles and prescribed 500mg valacyclovir 3 times a day. It’s horrible: ( I’m left with so many scars all over my bum that look hideous. Hi am sandra form Chorley I had the shingles and I went to my doctor s she give me calaminelotion and it’s as cleared up a bit she all so give me Zapain codeine phosphate paracetamol try them ok. I’m 32 & my acupuncturist says she thinks I have shingles.

A Young Shingle

The following morning I felt the Shingles creep under my eyebrow so I texted my doctor again since everything I read said it could cause blindness. A visit to the doctor revealed that Greenberg had shingles, a painful virus that strikes nearly one million Americans every year. I didn’t need to worry about it until I was much older, said Greenburg, 38, who was diagnosed two years ago. So the shingles vaccine has a much harder job, in a certain sense. The doctor said it looks like shingles and gave me nothing so i put polyspourin on it and it went away i still have a scar but i dunno if this was shingles i hope not? but i am scared! i just searched the net and 50 of people who get shingles HAVE H. I had shingles in June of 2011, I went to the doctor he prescribed me Valtrex and it helped. Mine is right in my heart area thats why I had so many heart test. Yeah I had about six blisters in the center of my chest but I just thought it was a typical rash it never crossed my mind that it was shingles but as time went on and this deep burning aching pain in my chest continued and all my test came back negative for cancer etc. my Dr said it has to be nerve pain, I was like from what and he had said shingles well I told him I never had shingles, then he showed me a pic of them and bingo I remember the six lil blisters and he told me you don’t have to have any blisters at all you can have internal shingles, so after going through all kinds of ct scans, mris, bone scans, heart test and tons of blood work they came to the conclusion it was indeed PHN from shingles. I constantly ask if this is shingles and my Dr says no, that it would only be on one side of my body. Shingles is so specific in placement and behavior that you just need to look at it and you know what you are seeing. The gyno said I had cervicitis but she could not identify the cause after running all tests. So, my primary care doctor said it had to be from the Shingles. A trip to his family doctor yielded a diagnosis of allergies and a prescription for antibiotic drops with a caution to see an eye doctor if it didn’t help. So, many of us have had it as children, and then we thought that that’s the end of it. And in mentioning it to this friend, who happened to be a physician, he said sounds like shingles to me, and I was put on an antiviral. So, if your husband has not had chickenpox yet, you could give him chickenpox, but not shingles. You may have been infected, and thus may be at risk for shingles. So, to your question: Since you never had chickenpox, should you get the shingles vaccine? Yes. Even though I said that you could have been infected with VZV and not developed chickenpox, it also is possible that you really never have been infected with VZV. The doctor firstly said it was an allergic reaction to something but she went to get a second opinion and a more senior doctor diagnosed shingles. I’ve had shingles so long no anti viral drugs help in fact they prolong the time frame before eruption thus more painful. Probably not my best idea but I hadn’t even hit double digits so I think I can excuse myself. Yea not true at all, I had shingles doctor never told me that.
