Anyone here ever have Shingles? My Mom used to get outbreaks every so often. I had chicken pox as a kid, 3rd grade I believe. So know I have the virus active in me (great). Last year, my roommate had a bout with it, but given all of her other issues that came to light as time went on, I have my doubts that she wasn't just "tripping" from too much booze and having some paranoia issues. She kept showing me this rash above her eye that I never saw, but she swore was there. Anyway, my point is, this morning I have this weird tingling feeling on my left forearm. It's not too painful, or overly itchy. It's not an itch I can scratch, and it's not a pain in the muscle or similar. It's just sort of right there, under the skin, more annoying than anything right now. I'm wondering if I'm at the beginning stages of a Shingles outbreak?? I happen to have a doctor appointment tomorrow, so I'll be sure to mention it to him. But I'm wondering if anyone around here ever had this. If so, do you recall it started out like this? Is there a way for the doc to test it out and treat it before it gets into full swing?
