I was diagnosed with shingles about 2 weeks ago. I have it on my scalp, forehead, and eye. My cornea is clear. The pain prior to having been diagnosed was horrendous and I thought it was due to an infected tooth (which broke off about an hour ago). The pain since being diagnosed has also been bad. I have a good day and think I am getting better then I seem to slip backwards with a bad day and feel awful again, lots of pain and pressure in my head and eye and tired, etc. I'm on the second round of the big blue pills and have eye drops. I saw the eye specialist last week. I have pain and numbness though the numbness seems to be decreasing. My eyelid still isn't back to normal.
This has just been an absolute mess and I wonder if anyone also has these good and bad days and if I'll ever be normal again? I've read that this pain can go on long after the rash is gone. I guess I just need some emotional support here, too. Having a hard time functioning.
