I am 21 years old and this is my third time having shingles. I have it on my left thigh. At first the doctors were skeptical because I was 20 when they first diagnosed me with shingles, and I was just as surprised as they were to find out. But they reassured me saying after medications I shouldn't have another outbreak for a while, if not any at all. Six months later I had another outbreak, same area just a couple inches moved. 8 months after that, here I am today with the same firing pain and numbness. I'm going to the doctor today because it's hurting me so much. I wish they could find a cure for this, I'm scared im that exception that will be having shingles all my life. I haven't found a pattern at all, therefore I can't seem to find the reasoning behind all of this. Is there anyone out there with the same issue! Someone who is in their early twenties and keeps having reoccurring shingles??? I'm going out of my mind here.
