I have a disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa in the groin area, which effects the glands. I'm stage moderate 2 and scheduled for surgery to have glands removed sometime in July. The recovery time is about 14 weeks. The symptoms are very simular to shingles. The last week or two I had a headache non stop with no help from pain meds, extremely tired, and joints aches. Weds I woke up to what seemed like a possible flareup going treo my breast now. I looked like a hive but burned and stinged very much. A few days later I noticed a few bumps there. Now I'm sure its shingles. I have a small area about the size of a quarter. So far the pain hasn't been as bad as my HS, but this took me back by a huge surprise. I'm sure that its a mild case thank goodness, but I am confused as to why straight accross my site the right side of my rib area keeps hurting too. Can anyone tell me if they have had this and what can I expect next? I have a apt. with my derm on Monday to discuss the surgery and he will see it then. Its the unknown and feeling so ill that is the hardest part. The pain from HS is so severe that if I do have pain from this, my body has become very tolerable to it. What happens after the bumps dry over? Does the pain stay?
