ive decided to write this as lots of folks on here seem to get shingles occasionally. I have had shingles for about 5 years now and they have burnt the nerves through on my left arm and leg causing me to loose my grip and cause me drop foot. I see a lovely Prof of immunology and i have been taking vaclovir twice daily . They dont rid me of it but lessen the impact. Today i was my gp's guinea pig having the shingles vaccine new to the UK . Dont know how i'll react as with the tablets it may lessen the blow and hopefully stop the nerves in my right side burning out. But the reason i am rambling on is to say it is available now, the NHS doesnt want people under 70 to have it really ( im 43) but as my GP said if you have fibromyalgia you have enough to deal with and should be pushed up the list . So dont suffer and go hassle your Doc x
