I have had shingles since March 2012. No blisters are left, but have the red skin with itching that drives me crazy!

My rhuemy wants to advance me to mtx but he said I have to get over my " infection" first. Has anyone had the longer type of shingles along with RA,fibro, or Polymyalgia rhuematica???? It's considered nerve damage, so I really wonder if it's still the shingles virus?

Just so say, I'm so sorry about this. I dread getting shingles, and had a horrible episode with crazy itching that drove me mad at night. I found that ice packs helped a bit. But it wasnt shingles. So all I can send is sympathy.
