Re: shingles myth or fact

It's a myth. I heard that too growing up and when I got shingles, asked my doc...he said NO.

And I even asked an infectious diseases specialist just recently.....she said ...NO.

It might hurt a lot and you might feel like you're dying but you aren't. It's just the chicken pox virus invading a nerve.
