I had shingles in October of 2011. I still have pain from my waist down at times. Mostly in my feet and legs. I had shingles on both sides of my body from my tailbone to the bottom of my feet. I cannot get rid of the ache and pins and needles feeling through out those areas. It keeps from working much even at home. I am 59 and wondering how long will I have this? No one knows... I would love some suggestions if anyone has some.
Thank You,

The early symptoms of shingles can mimic the pain of such conditions as pleurisy or appendicitis, so a definitive diagnosis is not really possible until the characteristic nodules appear. To differentiate the causal virus Herpes Zoster from Herpes Simplex requires the examination of stained antibodies from vesicular fluid.
