Oh just as an aside in case anyone gets them my doc has advised me to go off my Immunosuppresant for a week or two until I am coming out the other side of it.

Yuck. At what age do they recommend the shingles vaccine? I wonder if we are supposed to get that one or if it is a live virus vaccine like the one for kids/chicken pox?

Hope the antivirals kick in soon and you get some much needed relief pronto!

Those shingles are so very painful.:( I am sorry that you are having them on top of all the other things going on with you.:hug:

I have never had them, but my Mom did this summer and she said it was the worst pain she has ever had.:(

Take care Lily.:hug:

One tiny consolation that it's not in your eye (s). Not the best timing to have to stop the immunosupression though with all the other neiro problems you're having.

Hi Lily,

I know the Lidoderm patches are helpful with shingles. I hope you can get some of them. I do hope you feel better very soon friend.


Love,
Sandy

No, it's not ideal timing Cath :( I will hop back on them as soon as this is over.

Today is a little better pain wise Sandy, I really hit the Panadeine Forte yesterday and last night - will take more tonight so I can sleep. Maybe the anti-virals are doing their thing - I've been on them for 3 days now :luck:

:hug:

love
Lily
