I have diagnosed with shingles. I net into my military Dr Tues with extreme pain and numbness in my left hand, arm, shoulder. I thought it was from a bite of some kind because I am allergic to almost everything that flies. They gave me Ibprofin. I had to go back Friday because the pain was unbearable, it hurt to have a shower!!! I have some lesions on my left hand and it is shingles. I have been in pain before but this really sucks!!! I have a lot of drugs now and I am still in extreme pain. Anyone ever have this? What works to help get over it sooner other then the drugs. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Please send booze to help me wash down the pills.
