I started having really bad pain that would radiate to my abdomen on Sunday. I was in so much pain Wednesday and I developed a rash on my stomach. I went to my doctor and he said I have shingles. I was so upset because I have not felt good in months and was just diagnosed with being Hypothyroid a few weeks ago. I was put on 800mg acyclovir 5x a day and Darvocet and Lidoderm patch. The darvocet didn't work and my Dr switched me to Lorcet.The Lorcet works better but I am still up half the night in pain. Anybody have and advice? when will this go away? Thanks in advance.Diane
