No, not the sort that you find on a beach. The one caused by having chickenpox. It can come back as shingles in later life…..
Hubby is due his vaccination against it which is great, but I’ve had an aching lower back for a week. It hurt even more last night, each time I tried to get comfortable I got shooting pains in my back and leg. My hubby had noticed a rash of blistery spots in a line on my lower back, just on one side. Suddenly it occurred to me this might be shingles. I looked it up and found an image that seemed similar to what I have. Luckily I got a doctors appointment and they decided it was a mild case so I’ve got some tablets that should calm it down. They used to say if your shingles met in the middle you would be very ill (not sure how bad or how they could), I’m thankful it’s not too bad.
