Okay ... Shingles appeared about 2 weeks ago on my back, left side, right under the bra strap. I must have a light case because I’m not in the kind of pain that most people talk about. The doctor put me on a mega antibiotic, which seems to really help. I slather the spot in calamine lotion, which also seems to really help. I’m already on gabapentin for mild neuropathy and i think that really helped with the nerve pain. But is it normal for the pain to radiate to the front and cause my ribs to be sore? Feels like a small knot under one of the ribs but could that be an irritated lymph node? I did have a lump pop up in the right node under my arm when the shingles were at their worse. It’s gone down but I can still feel it. I’m hoping all of this nonsense is just reactions to the shingles. Also having excruciating pain in my left wrist and thumb area. Probably arthritis but it really hurts. I know it’s not broken. I don’t have scans until the 28th so paranoia is setting in. I’m on Ibrance and Femara and won’t know if they are working until the scans are done. My BC Mets is in my lungs. Scared all this pain could be possible bone Mets. Feel like the cancer is trying to spread. Am I just paranoid or what ?
