swollen lymph nodes could = shingles ?
Hi there, I'm a 23 yr old female, and I had my first case of shingles when i was 17.
My first symptoms then were a painful rash and swollen lymph nodes right below my left armpit, it almost felt like a ball inside my skin i could feel about - and it was quite visible even just looking at it, but the 'ball' and swelling went completely away once my rash/blisters were healed was feeling better about 3 weeks later.
I've been feeling sick for about 3 days, kind of like an on and off sinus cold and last night i was feeling buring/tingling in the exact same spot i had shingles the first time. ALSO the swelling/ball like mass is back and quite sore, right now my skin is a little red, or i guess 'blotchy' in that area but no distinct rash or raised blisters.
Are these early signs of shingles?? has anyone experianced this??
