From what I understand the pain can last long after the blisters heal though. I am glad to see you on the board again! Hadn't seen you in awhile and was worried that you may be sick. Hope you were just busy and not unwell.
Thanks too Fantine, I think I have heard of the vaccine but believe it's live vaccine and I have heard some conflicting opinion about live vaccine? Knot
thanks for your concern knot. i'm still around. have just been very busy. planning on moving back to my home town before the end of summer. had my yearly ana test done again and surprisingly it's negative again. it was negative a few years ago too. doc's say it doesn't mean that i don't have sjogrens and i've also read that the negative reading could mean that it will come back worse. have been having a lot of joint and spine pain, so not sure if it's the sjogrens, the fibro, the osteo or the menopause....lol. i know i certainly have to watch the stress. can't believe the degree of heart palps that i get when i stress about something...geez!! glad that you nipped the shingles in the bud early. my mother really suffered with the stabbing pain. poor thing...she went through so much....shingles, broke her neck in a car accident and then a year later she succumbed to leukemia. glad i was with her most of the time. you keep mending girl. glad you're not feeling too bad and again...thanks for the concern. so sweet of you.
