My head has been sore and tender for almost a week. I figured it was because I am on sufasalazine and your supposed to be careful of the sun. I worked in the yard without a hat on a hot sunny day (stupid I know!)so I figured it was badly sunburned. I have had shooting pain in my face and ear area. The pains were horrible and about every 5 to 15 seconds. The Clinic Dr I went to on Sat, cause I could't stand it anymore, said I had an irritated nerve in my scalp and gave me neurontin. Well, my scalp was so tender this AM that it hurt on my pillow. I got into see my reg Dr today and I have shingles! Since I didn't get in right away, now the pain will probably last longer, and sometimes people have outbreaks all their lives. AGHHH! I am beginning to think that I will never be without some pain everyday. Be it my back, lymphedema in my arm, and eveything else we all feel with aging, GEEZ! What next!!
Glad I have you all to cry to!
It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
