Hi! On the 5th of October I woke up with really bad shoulder and upper back pain and a very sore nose. It felt like I had cold sores inside my nose, either side of my septum with the right side much worse and still blistered. I had a slight sore throat and tonsils were only slightly inflamed. I felt a bit run down. On the Friday, my lymph nodes were up at the back of my head both sides, lymph node on behind right ear and one in neck right side were swollen. I had an achy neck and right shoulder. GP said I was just fighting an infection. Saturday lymph node came up on right collarbone, neck swelled slightly that side as well. I had severe headache right side with flashes of pain above my right eye. I was getting hot flushes as well. Monday different GP said my lymph node in groin right side was also swollen and that there was inflammation in my right shoulder area. I forgot to mention the blister in my nose, left one has cleared up but right side it's still there and painful. After going to the GP my lymph nodes returned to normal size but I have been in considerable pain in my arm, hand (felt like carpal tunnel syndrome) and right leg around my calf area as well as right side of head, constant headaches. It feels like it's a nerve pain, intense pulsating sharp. When I visited the second GP I mentioned to him that my skin on right shoulder felt like sunburn. I also have a couple of bumps on my scalp which have been really itchy and certain areas of my scalp are very painful to the touch and can cause shooting pain down in to my neck. I have no rash that's visible, just what's in my right nostril and a couple of bumps on my head. Could this be shingles?
