These millenials just can't handle the pain!!! In my day we would just ignore it or maybe take a spoonful of honey before bed.
“ I’m fairly young “?Bro, last yr, no bull chit, I was at the job, right and kept saying to myself my undershirt is hella annoying me right now. Just real scratchy for no reason. As the day progressed, it went from scratchy to burning.
Next day, got hit w rashes and blisters. Diagnosed w shingles. I’m fairly young, so it caught me off guard. The Doctor said it’s no longer just older ones affected by it, but anyone who had chicken pox before.
I feel for you bro. I didn’t have a bad case of it, but just that mild case along made me neve want to experience it again when I get older, which my physician said it’s very likely.
JesusIn the 90's I knew someone who caught chicken pox in his late 30's from his daughter. He ended up on life support with critical organs shutting down. His doctor told his wife to prepare for the worse and to consider funeral arrangements. He miraculously survived but had considerable health/physical problems afterwards.
I hear you. Like a sick day, never take it when you are sick. I am easily addicted so I treat pain meds with fear but I agree they are not to be wasted.I've had 3 operations in the past 2 years, one knee and two on the same shoulder no way in hell I was wasting my Vicodin on pain. I want them when I feel good to make me feel even better. LMAO
When you get routine blood work see if they are doing uric acid. Might be standard part of blood panel.Is this more or less painful than gout? I somehow got that when I was 17 and even the doctor couldn't believe it....that **** hurt
Go read some authoritative stuff, like CDC, Mayo Clinic or WebMD. These vaccinations only protect for a few years and not 100% effective. The new 2-shot regimen, Shingrix is said to offer better protection. Should get second shot 2-6 months after first for optimum protection.The shots may help, but a friend I know got the shot and still got shingles.
wow. very informative. what do you have for ringworm? i have tried OTC anti fungals, but might need to go to a doctor, which i am trying to avoid.You can cure shingles within one week with natural remedies.
You should eat pineapples and mangoes every day which will break down the cell walls of the virus.
You should also be taking Blackseed oil which attacks the mother virus in the colon.
PULLING with fractionated (liquid) coconut oil at least twice a week for oral health.
Drink Sour Sop, Roots tonic and beet juice to fight infection and increase circulation.
For external use: make a tincture of colloidal silver, Teatree oil, Coconut oil and a small amount of lime juice.
Not a big drug taker myself, I still have most of them. Don't even drink, usually an aspirin is about as far as I go. I keep them in case of some emergency.I hear you. Like a sick day, never take it when you are sick. I am easily addicted so I treat pain meds with fear but I agree they are not to be wasted.
Tinea is one of the hardest fungi to get rid of (especially in nails); it’s not strong but it’s very smart.wow. very informative. what do you have for ringworm? i have tried OTC anti fungals, but might need to go to a doctor, which i am trying to avoid.
Nerve damage does scares me in all this , I'm on Neurontin (gabapentin) 300m and Valtrex 1000m (3) times a day taking at same time , doctor gave me way more gabapentin for nerve pain then Valtrex (10) days worth it looks like after Vatrex there maybe lingering pain geee whiz.Came down with shingles right after I got home from our last away football game Louisville. Valtrex cured the outbreak, but I still have Neuropathy on my left side which runs from my azz down to my foot. Have tried Acupuncture, Massage, Exercise, Tens treatment and Chiropractic adjustments. Also used Gabapentin. Nothing really helped. Be careful using Gabapentin. You can have severe withdrawal symptoms if you use high dosages over an extended period of time.
Still don't know why they can't cure nerve damage. If they can reattach limbs and faces which seem to connect to the nervous system with no problems, why not neuropathy nerve damage. I can only guess there is not enough profit for them to do something.
LOL Another day behind you, buddy! Man, I remember that rolling around in agony feeling way too well.Nerve damage does scares me in all this , I'm on Neurontin (gabapentin) 300m and Valtrex 1000m (3) times a day taking at same time , doctor gave me way more gabapentin for nerve pain then Valtrex (10) days worth it looks like after Vatrex there maybe lingering pain geee whiz.
Oh my what a ride this is brothers last night rolled around never comfortable but did sleep some off and on , right now at HUGE DESK getting ready for a relax stress free day in electrical distribution with contractors and GC yelling screaming all day long constantly.
BTWAs you recover, discuss your very high stress and anxiety with a health care professionals. Let them know it is severe. This is a huge factor in your health and you can’t let it go. Take charge and LET THEM KNOW
