August Bride with shingles! Fun!
I'm 32, getting married in August, have a fiancee for whom I moved to Madison, WI for (and he's a poorly paid WISCONSIN state employee too)... and I probably have shingles.

Developed a rash last Wednesday which I thought was due to a fabric belt or possibly saw dust that got in my jeans. A day or so later, I started to feel a sharp pain to the right of my spine. On Saturday night, I started feeling a strong pain under my armpit on my right side. I think that's gone away now.

Going to doctor tonight (hopefully) to get a proper diagnosis and to do whatever next.

I already have depression/anxiety and reading info on this illness not only is making me feel like a 60 year old but is on-off calming and freaking me out.

Writing to share experience and get feedback or support.

I mean, COME ON!!! Shingles?!?! And a wedding?

Re: August Bride with shingles! Fun!
I know of several people in their thirties and forties who developed shingles. It does happen.

Good news is, if you get on the antiviral medicines within the first few weeks, it should clear up entirely in less than a month.

Or, it could be you don't have shingles. What happened at the doctor?
