How are you feeling? It has been just over 2 weeks now with the Shingles. My rash (on my arm only) is finally starting to fade. The pain is still pretty bad but at night only. So during the day I am fine which is great but then my sleep is disrupted at night so I am still taking pain meds to help sleep. The pain now is weird though. Kind of like sunburn skin. I feel a slight itch and then I just rub it lightly and then it feels like my skin is burning below the surface and is going to peel off.
My Crohn's seems to be under control with the 6 Mp. That is the only thing I take right now. I am sure it caused my immune to be compromised causing Shingles to come out.
Hope you are doing better.
