i had what was described to me as a "severe case "of shingles ive never spoke to anyone properly about this due to covid etc.ive been on sites and seen pictures of someone with a rash and saying they felt terrible for a fortnight. when i had ! shingles the rash i got started on the right hand side of my back in less than 8 days (thats when i was able to see a doctor)(this happened at the start of covid lockdown)(i suffer from severe anxiety have done all my life from being a child)the rash/blisters had spread round my torso up my back down to my groin area up to my belly button up the right hand side of my ribs and split like a y shape either side of my right armpit .now 2 and a bit years later i still frequently get bouts of the horrible yucky feeling i had when i had the rash to the point of feeling sick .i can get 2 weeks of trying to exercise then just feel completely drained and need to lie down all the time .i feel extremely sick on days where it isnt even that hot (pre shingles id be working out 5/7 days a week /outside doing long walks on my own all day in the sun im only 48)i feel randomly really sore where the worst of the rash was (which im told shouldnt happen)(i was extremely careful during the 8 or 9 weeks where i had blisters and was on the antiviral tablets)i have very little scarring but can sometimes feel like my back is being snapped . my physical health is a shambles going from someone extremely fit to what i feel like now. i have been told i have i.b.s. but i think this is wrong as the tablets for that make no difference to the pain im in when this happens (this may be irrelevant) is there anyone else who has felt the same or simmilar to this as i dont know where to turn or what to do and i may be being a bit hopeful but i dont think there should be nothing i can do to get my body back to some kind of better ! im just hoping theres someone who i can relate to here thanks
