shinglse on the inside without the blisters on the outside anyone heard of it happening.
I have never heard of anyone, but would like to know the symptoms when there are no blisters on the outside. please keep us posted on your findings.
I have had 3 bouts of the shingles and got the shingles vaccine after the 2nd time. I always think I pulled a muscle or think I have a kidney infection which makes me lose alot of sleep because it hurts worse at night. I go for weeks before I realize it is the shingles because the tiny red bumps are so tiny and difficult to see on my back until it gets so painful, I have to get someone else to check my back-doctors have completely missed it before but now I know. It runs along a nerve so it may not be visible, just burns or feels like a pulled muscle.
I have had Fibromyalgia for at least 10 years, and developed Shingles 3 weeks ago. Wondering if anyone in this group has experience managing doctors through this duality.
I have active shingles. It is primarily on the inside. I have scalp pain from nerves. Otherwise I have had 3 small red bumps you could hardly see and they disappear. The drs were surprised that it did not present with the big rash. It makes diagnosis harder.
5 years ago I was diagnosed with shingles. I never had a rash, bumps or blisters. What I did have was severe pain on my lower right rib cage which radiated around my right side to my lower back. The Dr. told me it was a classic symptom for shingles.
But somebody please tell me if I can expect another episode, and are there any triggers like maybe stress?
