Ive been having these weird symptoms lately... About 3 weeks ago i became unbelievably itchy.. No rash, apots, no new detergents/soaps nothing. I even had what people online have referred to as "zingers" in the groin area but all i found was that it happened to pregnant women... I havent been pregnant in 12 years, anywho...
Yesterday i felt a lump right in fromt of my right ear mear my jaw. I started to feel weak and had a "sensitive to the touch" by my right eyebrow. Then within an hoir or so it got worse... Spreading down to my chin and back towards the middle of my head. It was like a stabbing/sharp unbearable pain. So my bf took me to the ER and they diagnosed me with shingles... Gave me a shot for pain and sent me home with valtrex and pain meds... I started having diarrhea last night and whn i woke up it feels like my right ear is numb to the touch... Almost like when ur leg falls asleep and u hit it to wake it up, to no avail. Ive taken my 3rd dose of the valtrex this am and i feel like i bench pressed a buick. I have a low grade fever of 100, joint pain and fatigue... Is this normal for shingles? Or it depends on when u caught it? I am a nurse but habe NEVER dealt with this.... Any help would be appreciated
