This time with the extreme pain, i took two doses of Valtrex and the pain is gone. Don't know if this is a coincindence or if shingles can cause this type of pain before the rash occurs. Something worked.
Shingles can cause the most debilitating pain you can imagine. Can you have the immunization shot for shingles now, since you've had it recently? They give it at most drug stores/pharmacies, so check in to it, you don't want a recurrence of that and if it starts and does not go away you can have it for years and have the pain right along with it, trust me, it can ruin your life, so please look in to the shot to prevent any more outbreaks. Good luck, glad it went away so quickly this time.
