TAnn Posted July 16, 2005 Share Posted July 16, 2005 I've been doing a little (and I mean very little) reasearch about shingles. When I was in the ER with the extreme pain one of the nurses wondered if it could be shingles, although they never actually SAID that I had it. This caught my attention, because I think two of our members who are on Alimta got the shingles also. I am pretty convinced that all the pain and what has turned in to the most HORRIBLE rash I've ever seen is definately shingles. I'm on a prednisone pack for 5 days to see if it helps, so far the pain is a little more manageable, like from a 10 to a 7. Still can't do anything really at all. Leave it to me to have the worst experience ever with the easiest chemo ever!!! Any one else's thoughts on the shingles idea? TAnn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
