is ti shingles

I woke up with a faint pain behind my left shoulder blade. Next day it was very painful and I noticed that I had what felt and looked like hives that were itchy on the outside of my right thigh. The dr said he believes it's shingles thought the symptoms don't fit exactly and prescribed the medication that I take 5 times a day for 1 week. It has been 24 hours since I started the medication and the pain be hind my shoulderglade is no longer excruciating.
Could it indeed be shingles?
Does the medication kick in so quicly?
