Hello all. I'm a 30 year old normally fit and well lady living in the UK. On Tuesday I was diagnosed with a stone in my salivary gland. This sorted itself out on Wednesday. However on Wednesday morning I had a weird feeling in my back, left flank and left hip (bra strap going down in a diagonal direction). This felt this mild sunburn and my clothes were irritating it. I also had this feeling in my upper outer left thigh. I have been feeling tired but no flu like symptoms. So Wednesday I started to get a few sharp hot needle pains and a few intense burning sensations and last night I could not sleep due to the bed clothes irritating my skin and every time I moved I hurt. Today I am a little sensitive but nothing major however I feel like I have damaged my left shoulder blade and my left kidney. I've had a head ache all day and now and then I get a little stab of hot needle either in my side or top of my leg.
I have no rash, bumps or redness at all.
No chance of getting a GP appointment today but managed a telephone consultation and he said it sounds like shingles I just have to wait for a rash. Also 3 of the Drs that I work with (albeit psychiatrists) also diagnosed shingles. I feel like I'm going mad or have convinced myself .
Does it sound like shingles? When should I expect the dreaded rash? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated
