Hello all, I am new here. I went to the hospital early Friday morning because I thought I might be having a stroke. Turns out I have shingles on my face. I did not yet have the rash but could feel the bumps under my skin. I have seen the optometrist and all is ok there, and the rash is now out and while painful not overwhelming yet (or maybe it won't be) I have a splitting headache that worsens when I move around too much so I'm keeping it calm. My question is, is it possible for some people to not have the pain that others have? Or... is it just early? I have the rash but so far no yucky oozy stuff. I am also a teacher and first day of school is Tuesday this week. I just can't decide what to do about work. Thanks for any insight. Oh and yes I am on day 2 of an antiviral. Valacyclover 1000mg 3x a day.
