how common is leg shingles??
Everyone I've talked to has known someone who has had shingles or had them themselves. I've got shingles on my right buttock and down the entire front of my right leg. The pain has been very intense especially on my entire thigh. I'm just wondering how common is leg shingles and will I ever stop walking aroung looking like "Chester" from the show Gunsmoke??? I've had shingles since July 3rd and took 4000mg of Zorifax a day for 7 days and now am taking Lyrica, 2x a day. It gets kinda discouraging cause I try to be upbeat and positive about all of this and keep thinking it's going to get better and just when you think you are getting better.....BAMMMM, there's that jabbing and stabbing pain shooting though. It certainly is an inconvenience, isn't it?
