Shingles Then Fibro

Shingles Then Fibro

Has anyone else gotten fibro after having shingles? Also if you did, how long did it take for the shingles pain to stop?!

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I had shingles about a year or so prior to being diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
Most of my Shingles lasted about a month with pain.

I had shingles when I was 18 and 23. (Right in time for college graduation) then a few months later I got diagnosed with fibro. I've heard the pain can linger up to 1 year. I've never been in so much pain in my life. I hope the shingles pain goes away soon. Its too much to handle on top of this horrible illness.
