On June 2nd 2019 I had what I thought was a rash but after the 2nd day it had spread from my left breast to my upper arm and they looked like blisters. So we went in search of a doctor! We haven't had the need for one for quite awhile. We knew this was now urgent: pain was bad, eventually found a doctor in the local shopping centre. He immediately said 'You've got shingles.'. I couldn't believe it, I thought only very sick or stressed people got shingles and I was neither.
Female, 54, fell on her back - more on the right side - upon iced stairs. The main impact was on her right hand and the right and back side of her head. Ever since - for 5 weeks - she experienced constant pain in her right hand, shoulder, neck and chest, and periodic headaches. The movement of her right hand was restricted. Also, she could not sleep well.
She was treated for the consequences of the injury and Post-Traumatic Nephropathy.
