Really weak following virus, but feel fine. What's going on?

I had shingles 3 weeks ago. Got anti vitals, rash has gone. Feel absolutely fine, except legs and arms like jelly. And I mean like jelly, I can hardly walk. I don't feel tired or achey, just jelly arms and legs.

It's been like this for 2 weeks, and isn't getting better/worse or changing in any way. I've been to the doctors and she said it will go eventually. But when? I'm really bored and pissed off with it. Can't do anything or go anywhere

Shingles is an odd virus. I was fine straight after and then 4 weeks later was wiped out and exhausted and was signed off work as kept nearly fainting.

We'll, my legs improved yesterday, but I'm still tired. So at least something's changed!
