    Shingles ... Pregnant

    Pain is almost unbearable. Is there a worse than normal point far as pain? I can't take tylenol or Advil. Doctor wanted to prescribe Codeine. I don't think that is safe to take while pregnant. Rash started to appear last Tuesday and started to hurt Thursday and progressively worse since. Is it normal to be somewhat shortness breath. Maybe because of intense pain. No appetite and swollen abdomen. Blisters under breast and extends around side to the middle of spine. Some of blisters that I can actually see turned like a purplish color. Is that normal? Pain making my heart race hurts so bad. Anyone know anything on can spray or something?

    Are you not taking acyclovir?

    Call your doctor back...and call your OB and ask them what to ask your GP for.

    My OB said check with Primary and he wanted to give me Codeine. It's too late to take the other medicine because I am around a week in to having Shingles. My Primary was supposed to call me with possible alternative to Codeine. Still waiting on that. I was up all night crying in pain
