    Sorry to hear this. I have been through this too and for me it cleared up and at times I felt better but then close to my monthly I would get so sick again. Like I am right now. My symptoms seem to increase around my time of the month which is always coming or sometimes it doesnt come and Im stuck with the symptoms until it does. Like right now Im really late and really sick and in alot of pain in my lower back and in my ovaries. I pray that I start to give me some relief. The worst thing I get is painful blisters in my mouth. I do hope you feel better. Its such a horrible thing that us ladies have to endure. One thing the doctor told me when I had a rash was to increase my water intake. She said that I was dehydrated. Even with me drinking three bottles of water a day. So I did and the rash subsided. I hope this helps.

    Great.. something else for me to look forward too... UGH I always thought that was for the elderly people but I guess that's not the case. I did read that honey helps cold sores so perhaps it could help the blisters around your mouth.

    I would be look at healing your gut, probiotics, vitamin c, a good honey would help such as manuka honey. Eat well with lots of veg, reduce sugars and bad carbs like white bread... see how you go. Shingles is a pain sounds like you got a mild dose but yes it can impact on parts of the body sounds like the gut for you. So if you can help yourself with that area you should heal faster I would say.
