I'm a 49 yo male. For the last 4-5 weeks I've had shingles and I would say for the last 5 days I've been managing without taking any painkillers. I had the rash on my shoulder and a little on my chest. The rash has practically gone but I'm left with a weird sensation/pain in my chest which could easily be mistaken for a cold/flu infection. I know its not but it feels like it. It almost feels like a chill. I'm pretty sure its just the nerves in the area kicking off.
I guess I'm just curious if anyone has experienced this as well. Preceding my shingles outbreak I had a mild UTI, and a minor chest infection previous to that. I'm pretty convinced this was all tied up with the shingles kicking off.
Would be interested in other people's feedback
