I didn't know there was such a shot, should everyone be getting one?

Is that going away Mike?

The shingles shot is a live vaccine that is kept frozen. I had never heard about it until I got shingles. It is usually "sold" to people over 60 years old and costs money. If you can get it, get it. You do not want to get shingles anywhere on you. You can even get it on your ass. If you have had chicken pox, you have the shingles virus hiding in a nerve. You can get it.
Never had chicken pox? Make sure you get chicken pox shots to prevent chicken pox and shingles.

Funny, my mechanic was telling me about his left-sided pain on his torso. No recollection of hurting himself, but he noticed a faint type of rash forming.

Of course I said, "go to the md!! you might have shingles!"
So he went after work and was diagnosed with shingles on his torso. He's happy he went in right away and started on the antivirals

So, did you follow up with your iritis ophthalmologist appt?

I found that the shingles DID affect my vision in the left eye. I will have to get a new prescription in a month or so when this is settled down more. Everything is out of focus in my left eye. It is the end of June. I got this the end of April. It has been two months and although I look OK, the nerve affected is still damaged and sending wrong signals to the brain. It makes it hard to sleep due to the itching and pain.
If you can do it, GET YOUR SHINGLES SHOT.
