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.
