Shingles

 Im so bored at the moment , lacking motivation , yet another minor league batch of shingles . Just nuisance ones, tiny rash , bit of pain, leg keeps giving way and need sleep . Ho hum only another 12 years till i am eligible for the vaccine ..lol ...But my mother says its a fat lot of good shes had shingles more since she had her jab . Oddly both my parents had bad shingles from their 40s so i guess ive been genetically gifted . My dad always got them in his eyes which is serious , my mothers much like mine is on both sides , one side minor the other side shit i need antivirals .  Things you didnt know about shingles . Their have found 30 different variants , yes you can get it on both sides . yes you can get it without a skin rash , internal shingles is hell on earth . You cant give it to other people unless they want to scratch off your scabs and rub themselves against you hence genital herpes getting such a bad press . You can only get shingles if you have had chicken pox .  Doctors and shingles dont really mix  , most dont give a fig, to them its just a petty annoyance that they consider to be just a nuisance for old folks.  Then their are the doctors who have had shingles , they will be flinging antivirals and heavy duty painkillers like smarties at you .  But if youre a long hauler you learn that the painkillers really arent a lot of good and the antivirals are very hit and miss with there own wonderful side effects . I suppose that with all the fuss over Long Covid we can hope that they come up with something a bit more effective for a treatment ...Oh and joy of joys the latest conspiracy theory is that shingles are a sympton of Covid !!   nope covid can trigger shingles because your immune system goes gung ho after any viral sympton even a sore throat .

So now your experts on the worst annoyance on the planet

  1. It sounds horrendous! Sorry, but I'm going to add jealousy to your list of horrors: I had shingles WITH NO PAIN! I was knackered but it didn't hurt.

  2. I can have my shots for shingles, but have to wait a year since my last case. I have had them twice, both times on my face. This time all down the side of my face and on my ear drum. I got them 2 1/2 weeks after my first Covid shot and so did my sister. A family friend has had them 6 times since having Covid last year. I really do believe that the virus and the vaccine play havoc with your immune system and that shingles takes advantage of the fact. I was told by the doc that shingles aren't contagious, but you can give someone chickenpox if they have not had it, or had their shots for it. It is painful. I hope this bout is short. Take care.
