Internal Shingles-Has anyone had this?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone has or in the past had internal shingles? I would love to know how long it lasts. I am on week 4 and if I even exert myself slightly, my chest tightens, feel extreme nausea and faint like symptoms.

It is not heart at all..completely healthy otherwise. I am losing patience at week 4 and starting to get stressed that I maynot be able to function at full capacity with my job.

Any comments would be appreciated greatly? 

Thanks

Rob

    Rob:  Did you get more than one professional opinion?  Mine was the full run with a rash but I still feel the tingling and pain three months later.  I found stress makes it worse.  Hang in there.

      Hi Susan, I have shingles no bumps I can relate with the tiredness I tire so easy. I'm 50 this year and before the symptoms of shingles I was worn out if I walked my usual distance. I remember walking in the library and stopped at the front desk telling them I must be real out of shape I was so tired. That was about 4 days before the tingling sensation in my back started.

Walking into walmart the other day i headed toward checkout it looked like it' was at the end of a Forrest and I had to tell myself you can make, you can make it.So I know how you feel...
