I noticed last night a blister on my abdomen that burned when touched.
Since I had shingles in the past, i was worried, by morning three more, went to clinic, by time seen , more , but now on both sides which is atypical of shingles so I felt better about that.
I was told it was the same type virus, They consulted with rheumi
and I started anti- viral.
Some of the side effects are same as PMR symptoms so will have to try to figure that out as I lower dose from 40 to 30 Thursday. Due to all this my rheum wants to see me Friday . I am glad I caught early although does not have same problems as shingles it can spread.
Another day in pmr/ gca / pred. land.... On the bright side by seeing my doc next week we will be able to go over biopsy results. in person
Anyone else experience getting shingles or same type of virus while on Prednisone?
