Any info is good, so feel free to ask your dad and neighbour about
their experiences. At the moment I'm rather dreading this going on for months. Managed to knock the pain on the head for a few hours this evening, but it's coming back again - just before bedtime, naturally. Last night I was in such bad pain, nothing could control it, not even codeine. I'm hoping it won't be as bad tonight 'cos I didn't get a wink of sleep last night.
As for the vaccine I'm too late for that :/ Apparently the earlier you take it the better. The GP I saw a few days ago asked me how long I'd had the rash for. When I said about
a week, he said it was too late to prescribe me anything for the shingles.
So I just have to see it through to its bitter end :-/
Edit: It's not the vaccine the GP was talking about
, it was antiviral medication. Sorry about
that. Not sure where the vaccine comes into this, but if I'm eligible for the vaccine I'm getting it ASAP.
I might have my next Entyvio infusion delayed because of this as well. Suppose it depends, but somebody on the Crohn's board told me she had to be 100% clear of shingles before she could have Entyvio.
