I am a 24 year old female. I went to the emergency room on Monday the 25th, because I thought I was having an allergic reaction to the antibiotics I was on for a tooth infection. It turns out that it was not an infection and is indeed shingles. I am only 24 years old. :( they prescribed me Gabapentin and prednisone.. they didn’t prescribe me anything for the pain. I have blisters all over my back on the left side, going over my shoulder around to my left boob. I have no idea what to expect, what happens next, or how long I am going to be out of work due to the pain. HELPPPP!!!
