Hey all! I had my first case of shingles when I was 16. They told me that it was extremely rare. I've always been a medical freak of nature. Well, I have been sick for a bit over a week and the doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I was praying that God would either take the pain away, or let someone figure out what was wrong so it could be fixed. Well, a couple of days ago God hit me with what it could be. I started remembering 10 years ago when I had shingles and I noticed a lot of the similarities of the past week. I did some research on the internet and called the nurse advice line. They asked a bunch of questions and then told me I needed to come in so the doc could take a look at my rash. I ended up with the same doctor I saw last week who told me that the pain I was having was a muscle spasm. He asked why I had waited a week to come in. I kindly reminded him that I had actually come in a week ago and that he had diagnosed me with a muscle spasm. This time, he lifted up my shirt, dropped it back down and said, yep. You have shingles. Well, duh! I'm trying to find other people that were/are young and have shingles.
