I was diagnosed with shingles last Thursday. My gp put me on anti virals for 7 days. It's pretty painful but doesn't seem to have spread. Is a week's course enough? He also told me to carry on working... I have to say I've felt so tired and in a fair amount of pain I have been off sick since last Thursday.
I'm a recovery worker in the community for young people with psychosis. I'm out and about on visits a lot and rushing around most days. It can be stressful some days too.
Is a week long enough to rest or should I go back to work Thursday? Need some guidance... the pain hasn't got any better if anything it's got worse since I was diagnosed. I'm also concerned I haven't been prescribed a long enough course of anti virals. I wasn't happy with my gp s attitude towards this when I saw him.
Any advice gratefully received.
