    Shingles and heart attack risk

    Hi all,

    I'm a 43-year-old male that's just developed a case of shingles.

    In my searching for treatments online, I stumbled across a large number of websites talking about the significantly increased risk of heart attack and stroke following a case of shingles.

    What do you all make of this? I lean on the anxious end of the spectrum and tend to worry about these things more than I need to.

    Thanks.
