A few days ago I thought I had pulled another muscle in my side as I reached to close a high window. This morning I woke up to red rash on one side of my back and abdomen. Looks very like shingles. Rang Gp this morning and having a telephone consultation this afternoon. I’m down to to 21/2 mg of pred , will I be given antivirals ? Anyone had shingles whilst having PMR. I’m booked to have my flu jab tomorrow do you think I should still have that.
I feel ok apart from pain and tenderness around my middle.
