^^ What he said! :)
At least the good thing is, once shingles is gone, you don't get it again:
This bit here is very very good, and incidentally you can order these remedies online rather than finding out Boots doesn't have them. These kind of remedies work; I used to treat my daughter with them in childhood illnesses, their efficacy was stunning.
You have my sympathy. Someone online wrote of shingles:
'I am writing nearly two weeks for my doctors appointment. The doctor I saw at the hospital had more sympathy, I said its so painful he said it is I have had it , no pain killer kills the pain it is so severe. He gave me tramadol that worked better.
I am depressed and in pain can hardly move it is on right side of chest going round to my back, it is like some one has stuck a hot iron on me then is stabbing the sore with sewing needles, then plunged a spear into it. I feel wounded.'
