Hi everyone! I had a very small outbreak last July of what was diagnosed by my doctor as shingles, and put on Famvir. Since then I have had fatigue, joint pain, etc. about 3 weeks ago I started having this burning headache, across my forehead, in my eyes, in my cheeks, lips, etc. I went to my doc and we discussed it and he gave me some Famvir again. Felt pretty sure that this was the "prodromal period" and we would soon see an outbreak. Sure enough, today the small rash popped up in almost the same place as before. I have started the Famvir per his directions. Has anyone else had this burning headache, or rather "face ache"? It is rather alarming as it is not the typical migraine sort of headache.
