Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Numbness or Tingling

Good. That makes zoster (also called "shingles") less likely, but if your burning or tingling sensation has only been going on a few days, a rash could develop in the area and that would make zoster quite likely.

Yes, I have had this for at least three months.

No, I have had this for less than three months.
