Got a rash a few days ago and just thought it was an insect bite or at most some eczema but it got worse and a slight aching and fever kicked in so I went to the Doc today, and she was all "Oh you have shingles Mr." and proceeded to commiserate with me for the rest of the appointment. I was relieved it was treatable but the way she was soooooo sorry for me has me freaked out. And she mentioned it will become pretty painful. :frown1: So I've started the anti-virals and am using the cream she gave me. I have a pretty high pain-threshold but what should I expect in terms of pain? Is it really that bad?
