It's been ages since I've been able to post. Life seemed to get hit with a bomb. Things are still not right yet, but I'm finding ways to pull focus back from only the terrible. But the second you start to get the balance (or think you do), another hit happens. This time -- Shingles! I was utterly surprised. Thought I was dealing with a female problem or something to do with the experimental reduction of HRT to see how it impacts the CTD, but the GP was adamant this was Shingles. So I'm off my Cellcept (as it interferes with the antivirals) and the couple small ulcers I had originally gone in with turned into over a 2 foot band of blisters in a 6 hour period. I've been zapped 'down there' multitudes of times and am praying I started the meds early enough so that there is no permanent neurological damage. Anyone had this?
