Greeting Shingles group,
I contracted shingles which affected my chest and breathing. I have finally improved after 2 months but my doc requested a CT scan.
CT scan came back with "pleural thickening on bottom of right lung". They said it is probably nothing and have scheduled another CT scan in 6 months.
Can shingles cause pleural thickening or is this something unrelated? I am a little worried but the docs seem to be unconcerned?
Appreciate any comments or advice.
