Re: How do you know if it is Shingles

I have to take it for 7 days, 3 times a day. I've never heard of silent shingles, but I learn something new every day. They did a chest x-ray and said all looked good in the lung, no pneumonia or anything. But my whole back is killing me. It hurts to move, breathe, etc. and I sweat like crazy when I am absolutely doing nothing, it is pretty much all the time over the last month, whether you are sleeping or just sitting in a chair or talking. I have had a fever for over 2 years now (99-101). So, I can't say if it is getting better or worse.
