Probably OT and not related to CFS but wanted to see if anybody had insight into this. About 6 months ago I had shingles (I am 33 but on prednisone so my dr at the time was not surprised). Since then I occasionally get pain where I had the shingles and in the mirror opposite on the other side of my body (how it was when I had shingles). But yesterday I started getitng the same pain along my left tricep and then a little on my right - spoke to my new doc this morning and although I had yet to develop a rash we have the antivirals at the ready. Well now it is more diffuse and covering most of my back - it feels like it's sunburnt plus prickly. So not thinking it's shingles anymore. What the heck is this? Neuropathy? Why all of a sudden out of the blue? I will talk to my doc in the morning but does anybody else have any ideas? Thanks.
