I have had shingles diagnosed a fortnight ago. I was given antiviral drugs and the red patches have disappeared leaving the dried up blisters. However, I have had a pain which is really an ache/soreness and tenderness a few inches above the actual shingles. The patches seem to be behaving themselves. The pain and tenderness is around my left rib area from beneath my breast and below but the shingles are below this just below my waist. I don’t want another appointment to ask a simple question to make sure it is the shingles. It has only appeared since the shingles began. Would be grateful if someone has experienced anything like this.

I remember reading that it can happen. Have you googled something like post viral nerve pain?

I think this is really common unfortunately. My mum had it. I'd definitely go back to the doctor as there different things they tried to help it.

Thank you for your help. Will google post shingle nerve pain. Just really checking the pain doesn’t relate to something else.
