Customer Question
I have a 28...

I have a 28 yr old daughter that was just diagnosed with shingles, she is experiencing so much pain, sores all over, my question. Is she a candidate for zostovax treatment?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It has been two weeks since first diagnoses, nothing is working for her

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do not think so, she has had a lot of medical problems for a couple of years now

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

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

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.
