Hello,

Shingles can be very painful. Did your doc put you on an anti-viral medication?

Thanks,

Schuyler

Certainly the doctor who has seen the lesions is better equipped to diagnose shingles than someone who hasn't actually seen the lesions. They are pretty distinctive and hard to confuse with other disorders. The antiviral will help lessen the severity and longevity of the symptoms, plus help avoid a long-term problem from shingles called post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) which can cause pain for years.

Best regards,

Schuyler

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
