Quadricep soreness that was a mystery, worse at night, then days later saw the rash from top to bottom of left leg - that was a week ago. Dx'd with shingles. Now, rash is mostly gone but soreness - like a burning - still bad in quadricep muscle. Most definitely affects my sleep. Taking prescript anti viral and Ibuprofen for pain. Even then, sleep is difficult. Otherwise I feel good. Want to continue my active lifestyle of lifting, running, cycling and winter sports. Snow shoed yesterday and feels like burning was worse after that and last night. Question is, should I lay off completely or go ahead with exercise? I've read this burning/ soreness can last weeks. Hoping exercise will help heal though.
