My boyfriend had shingles almost 3 months ago. They were so bad, it got into his blood stream and he ended up having a MINI Stroke. He's doing sooo much better but they are coming back a little on his rear and I'm worried about me now.
I've never had the chicken pox however I was vaccinated about 15 years old for Chicken Pox (adult vaccine).. Can he give me shingles or something from his shingles?
That's what I thought too. I think I'm safe at least. Yes, the shingles virus got into his blood stream and he works out every day. He came home from working out and had a stroke in the living room. He doesn't remember anything until the hospital. He is ok, but studdering was a side effect from it. He's improved big time, I am just worried about it coming back or me getting it.
I was told by the pharmasist that if somebody had been vaccinated for chicken pox I couldn't give shingles to them. I don't know how long the vaccination last so if I were you I would ask because you were vaccinated so long ago.
