I've been having this "headache" for over a week now, nothing will help. I have shooting pains up the back of my neck onto my head and it really hurts. Anyway, I was looking tonight in the mirror and I've got a huge, angry red rash in my hair. I can't sleep b/c of the pain.....anyone had em? I'm going back to the dr. in the A.M. .... I saw her about 10 days ago thinking that some blisters on my toes were shingles. Now I'm pretty danged sure.
Anyone? Did the meds they give help? How long did the pain last?
Do you have residual affects?

Lisa~Yes, I have had them and they are painful. I only had them once. Thank goodness. Once was enough. I had this red rash with blisters. It felt like the muscles under the rash were burning. I had to go to the doctor and they are the ones who told me what it was. The medicine they gave did help. I can't remember what they gave me though. I only had one patch of it and it was on chest ..right where your hand would be if you were pledging the allegiance to the flag.

If I was you, I would surely go to the doctor and get it checked out.
