Shingles # 6
« on: March 10, 2009, 05:28:36 AM »
I said it the other day I thought I was getting shingles again it,s 4:00am an I have a spot on my right shoulder that burns like Hell an you would know have no Valtrex in all the medicine,s I have on hand have it seems everything else. Thank God I have a doctor appointment 03-11-09 its wait for appointment or go to emergency room.My outer half had to go to work at 4:30 am an wanted to drop me off on the way to work.I said I will wait till tomorrow.So the only other thing I can do is take pain medicine on to hold on.Like everything else what don,t kill you only make you stronger.I am a strong believer that God only gives you what you can handle but sometimes I wonder???Lets put it this way it hurts so bad I am in tears. :'(

Sorry to hear that your going through all this.  If it was me, I would call the doctor first thing in the morning, and tell him that it's "URGENT" that  you get in there right away. You can't let this go on.
If not then get yourself to the emergency room.

Thats Great news !! Although I was never on Mepron ( I was on Dapsone) ,  it's nice to be able to get off some off the medications. Especially the antibiotics. Hopefully you'll get through this bout of shingles pretty fast !!
