Bit of advice please…went to the docs this week and have been told i’ve got shingles. When i asked the doc if i could still play sport she said i shouldn’t because it could make it worse.
So i’ve missed a couple of footy games this week and am kind of eager to get back into action, so was wondering has anyone ever had shingles, and how long did it take to go away?
It’s only in a small area on my back. It doesn’t really itch, its just a dull ache and stabbing pains, plus the skin is tingly. I wouldn’t want anyone to smack me in the back, that’s for sure. But i’m not sure how sport would make it worse. I don’t know whether the doc meant the physical contact or the sweating would make it worse.
