I'm a 37 yr old female. I've had the chicken pox as a child and been under a lot of stress the last 2 years. I have a history of anxiety and panic attacks. More so in the last year than ever. I woke up this morning with my left wrist and up the side of my forearm with a burning sensation. The top of my left wrist and forearm is very painful to touch! Feels like there is a horrible bruise there but there isn't. It doesn't really hurt unless i touch the area but have had a slight tingling sensation all day. Slight swelling on my forearm just past my wrist. I figured I slept on my arm weird but it still feels the same all day. I've never had shingles before but I do have herpes and I'm having a small outbreak right now. Any advice would be great. No rash or blisters. Thanks!
