I had the flu vaccination and shingles vaccination 2 weeks ago just before coming to America to see some of my children. I had an ablation at the beginning of September which led to a chest infection. A week ago I started feeling a bit below par. Have some spots on my forehead and in my hair and stabbing pains from one ear into my scalp which is very sore and sensitive. I have had chicken pox and shingles in the past and this feels similar to both but not quite as severe. If I was at home I would see my gp. On the nhs website it says. 1 in 10000 chance of this reaction but do you think amiodarone has increased this and would I be infectious? Sorry for the length of my explanation!
