For anybody who has experienced Shingles.
I had an outbreak last week and in addition to the horrifying rash, I have had tremendous muscle and back pain right under where the rash lies (upper-mid back that wraps around under the left armpit and left side of breast). It's like the flu. I can hardly stand or sit upright before I need to lie and rest the back.
My doctor didn't say there would be muscle pain. Is the muscle pain from shingles or scleroderma?
