    My shoulders started getting little bumps on them and they hurt. I thought it was just from being sunburned. This morning I woke up with shingles all over my shoulders and it hurts like hell. Thanks man.

    It’s covid

    #3 3 months ago

    Its both shoulders?

    #4 3 months ago

    Of course

    Quoted from Oneangrymo:

    Its both shoulders?

    Mostly on one but some around my neck and right shoulder. I thought it was just blisters from being sunburnt. I took a nap at the beach and didnt refresh the sunscreen

    I dont think shingles crosses into other dermatomes, so if its one shoulder and the other, probably not shingles

    ...back to Covid

    Doc said it was shingles on the left shoulder. The other side is blistering from being sunburned.

    Im the one that told you that and since you lost that bet with me, you’ll have to donate $20 to pinside.

    So this is your second bout? Ever get the shot afterwards or did you feel it wouldn't reoccur?

    I had shingles a few years back. Even tho I was in my late 50's and in good shape, I literally felt like I was 100. Everything was just so sore and stiff. And I even spotted it very early and was given meds to minimize it. Simply brutal.

    The last time I had it it was close to 20 years ago and it was a spot the size of a baseball. This is about the same size and in the same place. It hurts but doesn't seem to hurt as bad. EEE I don't remember making the bet but I was going to donate to Pinside anyway so Ill do it. I need to pay my CC bill however. I made a huge purchase and it is full up. I have one card and I keep a low maximum to keep myself out of trouble.

    I had shingles about 19 years ago. Mine was about the size of quarter. You think I should worry about it?

    Ouch. That stinks.

    i had shingles two days after I turned 40. It was misdiagnosed as a non-symptomatic ear infection the first time I went to the doctors and by the time it was clear they were wrong I was told it was too to take the anti-virals. It was on my bloody scalp and face. I looked like a klingon on half of my face. I really wish I would have taken pictures.

    PSA: if you have shingles on your face, treat the situation very seriously. If it spreads to your eyes, it can cause a lot of permanent issues including blindness.

    Currently getting over shingles. Mostly on right side, spot on my back. Couldn’t sleep for 4 nights. Not a good thing. Important to get to the doctor within 72 hours.

    Good luck

    It must have really hurt if it was on your face and head.

    So sorry about your shingles! I had the Zoster Vaccine a few years ago and glad I did - but found out it is only about 51% effective for five years. Going to get the new Shingrix shot, its more effective (91%) for a longer time. You can still get the Shingrix shot after having shingles to help prevent a recurrence, its available at Walgreens and other pharmacies I think.

    Don’t understand how they come up with the stats. I was unlikely, 33%, to get shingles if I did nothing. Now I’ve read that I’m unlikely to get shingles again since I’ve already had it. What is it, 33%?
    51% affective seems like a placebo to me.
