I started out by noticing sharp pain in my left temple. But did not think anything about i, as I was on vacation and was having fun. When I left to go home on the 13 of June still having the sharp pain in my temple but still did not think it was anything but a headache since I get migraines, well when I got home I of course went to bed but did not notice anything around where the pain was at, well the next morning I woke up and my husband said what is wrong with your face? I said what I went in to check and my whole left side of my face was red all around my eye on my left side of lip inside my left side of mouth was swollen too. Well I went directly to ER and they said you have Shingles dear but since it is so close to your eye we need to let a Opthomologist see you to make sure it is not in your eye. So they put me on a regimen of Acyclovir 800 mg 5 times day for 10 days and also Lyrica 4 times a day and Prednisolone ophthalmic supension (eye drops) 1 drop in left eye 4 times daily. Went back to Primary Physician and he said yes you are doing good and he noticed no vecicals, and now going on 29 days of meds still have not had one eruption of any vecicals . But the pain is horrific and I asked my Dr am I contagious he said no as long as no oozing vecicals. This has caused me to lose 3 friends at church because they were afraid I would give it to them I tried to explain but to no avail. Now what do I do.
Signed Still no vecicals and pain galore and no friends.
