I am so sorry you have the dreaded shingles and i hope you soon feel brighter.xxxxx

I'm so sorry to read that you have shingles - having had that back in Feb I can sympathise. Take care, I hope the pain isn't too bad x

Have they suggested you stop the enbrel for a while?

It's so difficult when you get the pain bur nothing to see to start with. I remember last time I had shingles I was desperate with the pain, then suddenly the little blistery rash appeared and all became clear. But those four days of severe pain with no apparent reason had me beat.

Glad you know what the pain is but sorry it is shingles, do try injecting your tum though I am sure you will find it less painful. Get better quickly.

poor u i had shingles this time last year not very nice hope u start to feel better soon
