Wow 15+ times...sucks! Been runing atemp of 100 the past few days. I'm in my third week and I usually get them abdomen around to the back. (bra strap area) I thought at first I broke my ribs because my sister and I had a bit of a fall on a 3 wheeler. Then started the pain. I've had chicken pox 3x's and this is my second time with shingles. First time with shingles was in 2000 but never broke out...it just stayed under the skin and in the same place. Just wondered if they get worse every time you get them? Thanks for sharing your story! My Dr. always looks at me funny when I tell them how many times I've had pox and shingles. Good to know I'm not alone in the frequent times of this crazy thing! :)
