hi , I’m 59 and for a few days I had a pain in my thigh and leg , thought it was sciatica, on and off. Then last Wednesday discovered a rash on inner thigh spreading, felt quite ill. Saw GP the same day and she said shingles and put me on anti vitals. For a couple of days it seemed to not have spread, just a few new bits on my knee ,then today 4 days in became swollen and very painful . Using calamine lotion which cools it but really hard to walk , pain has changed from stabbing pains to just pain particularly on inner thigh near my groin. Is this typical ? Can’t walk around and just want to sleep at the moment.
