I got the shingles vaccine in August and I haven’t had any problems. I had the MVD surgery in May 2009 and in Jan. 2010 got shingles around the scar area and ear. They told me it was from the trigeminal nerve. Imagine that! I was put on meds immediately and it turned out to be a mild case. They told me the earlier you start taking the med then the milder case. I was so afraid I would develop lasting pain, but that didnt happen. I would get into the doctor as soon as possible. Good luck
Thanks Connie, think I'll head into the doctor in the morning. I don't need this to get any worse. Thanks for the reply!
