Can the shingles vaccine cause a mild case. Example severe pain , tingling and burning sensation along a nerve. Specifically the ulnar nerve of the injected arm?
Very occasionally, a person has developed chickenpox following shingles vaccination (fewer than 1 in 10,000 individuals). A few percentage points of people get chicken pox blisters around the site, but they are harmless and they go away.
I was just diagnosed with shingles. I have started the medicine on Friday night, but I am still getting some lesions /rash is this normal?
Yes, it's normal. Shingles is long lasting, it generally takes a month to completely recover.
I had a severe case of Shingles a few years back. I ached, felt like I had the Flu, My midriff was sore to the touch. This started on a Saturday. This continued until the following Wednesday when I went to take a shower and saw the blisters. This lasted about three - four weeks. This was 2014. I also have Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma in 2003 and is in remission. Now I am suffering from after the Shingles with Nerve Damage and a itchy rash which is on my midriff, no blisters, numbness and small red rash not that huge. Only on the midriff. When the Shingles broke out for the first time I had it on my entire right side of my back and around under the right breast and midriff. My Doctor said I have permanent nerve damage from the Shingles because I had a severe case. I was told I could not take the vaccine because of the Lymphoma. This Doctor told me it was for one year only than I could take the shot. She told me I could get the Shingles again. I had Chicken Pox when I was six months old along with my twin sister.
It sounds like your immunity isn't good enough since you were an infant. Eat healthy foods, do more exercises, immunity is the key for health.
As long as you've recovered from the last Shingles, vaccination is helpful. Talk to your doctor before you get vaccinated.
You should have your doctor check your immunoglobulins. You may have a primary immune deficiency. If you do, you should not receive any live vaccines. Hope you feel better soon.
