First I had, what the dr thought, was enteritis. A week following that, I had an itchy rash on my areola, that looked like ringworm. The dr treated it as a fungal infection. Followed by headaches and dizziness. Last night, I was sitting in a chair and moved slightly and developed a sudden, intense pain in my lumbar area. The pain was so bad, I could barely walk. I called the chiropractor, as I thought it was a slipped disc. He told me to go to the Er to get muscle relaxers,then to him the next day. As I was ready to go to the Er, and pulling on my underwear, my hand was wet from touching my hip. I felt a bump and thought it was a spider bite.The dr was just going to do back xrays and had her look at my bump and told her about my wet hand(which was a blister popping) and she said I have shingles. I still wanted the x-ray and it showed new, mild degenerative damage. I was given acyclovir, prednisone and to put capsaicin on my rash. Burned awful. Now, am getting a weird pain in my pelvis, almost like bad period pain but I am 67. I had a shingles vaccine 4 years ago. Unfortunately, I am dealing with a huge amount of stress and see no way around it. I have Sjogren's, so am worried I will get sicker. Any advice?
