Back Mostly ... But

So I am returned! Mostly.

The shingles eruption is mostly resolved. The shingles pain is reduced and mostly controlled.

So mostly I am better!

The lingering pain is tolerable - the skin feels like a sun burn and the underlying tissues feel like pulled muscles when I move. These symptoms may fade with time - or not. But if not, I think it is manageable.

So the lesson to be learned?

If you get shingles,
get medical help sooner rather than later
- like within 72 hours of the eruption.

  7. Hmmm. Maybe I'd better check out that vaccine I've seen advertised in magazines. Will also check if my insurance will pay on it; I hear it's around $300!
    I know you just have to get through it, but it will pass....eventually. Glad you're better.
