You're welcomeIs there anything else you would like to ask on this topic?
Is it possible to have chronic shingles?
Mine seems to be ok I haven't even had acold in over a year
Then you probably don't have chronic shingles
I did have a boil on leg that i scratched and it went away in a couple days
Then you probably don't have chronic shingles, your immune system seems ok
i have these blister and have had pain over the past few weeks numbness and burning if Iput pressure on the area.
Sometimes the nerve pain can last for a long time
also heavy shaking that no one else can see
I'm sorry to hear that
i have been eating more regularly adn it seem to go away
The blisters or the pain?
You may ask your doctor to try you on a medication called neurontin, which should help
have also had these contractions in my diagham
Does it cause coughing?
they used to pull me right down to my knees
i should say torso on thighs
I see, that is not likely related to shingles
also I am as pale as a vapor
Shingles should not cause you to be pale, you may have anemia
maybe I am eating too much cottage cheese
Cottage cheese is not likely the cause of these symptoms
sometimes i get to a space with the pain where I would do anything to get it to stop
that is scary to me
What have you tried for the pain?
i have celebrex and acetomenaphen
advil if it over the top
Then you should ask your doctor about trying neurontin, it works well for this type of pain
i can try that
your name reminds me of a cup of coffee
funny, I've heard that before
it used to be the name of a coffee
brim full of nuts
I remember that
i also have insomnia
Is there anything you would like to ask on this topic of shingles?
i wondered if the insomnia was related
Is the insomnia caused by pain?
My mother used to guard chimneys and I wondered if some of her obsession may rub off on me
she also had singles
i guess that sounded odd
could there bea gentic connection?
She cannot pass shingles on to you, so it is not likely related
No, there is no possible genetic connection
i also have lupus anticoagulant is this related
No, shingles is not related to lupus anticoagulant
i am very tired now but I may have more questions on this topic
