I was just diagnosed with shingles after a month and a half of going back & forth to doc. I am not broke out on body...just on palm of hand.
I was told by the doc that it is common for post traumatic stress patients/chronic pain and neuropathy patients to get the shingles. Very weird to me. I had the shingles as a child and was broke out around my mid section. This go around started with major infection in my neck and face. Cellulitis and infection into my glands in my neck. I have progressively gotten worse and the doc came back today and said I had full blown shingles..."under the skin" ok...I am no doc but has anyone ever heard of this.
She told me it is caused obviously from a nerve problem. I have major nerve damage in my leg...but whats the deal with the swelling in my face and a patch of shingles on the palm of my hand.
Every since surgery I have fought and fought infection...this go around almost 2 months later is still winning the battle. I feel soooo bad.
If anyone out there has had this or has ever heard of getting shingles from a nerve problem please reply to this. Thanks to all!!
