I woke up Thursday morning with a few red spots. I checked the bed for bugs and spiders. Nothing. I slept in a different bed that night. More spots the next morning. This was the biggest.
I had additional spots by Saturday, and all the other spots had spread. They are all running in a line from my hair, down my neck, across my shoulder and on to my upper arm. Seems like a pattern, there? Of course, I thought I probably had shingles! Because they hurt, not itch.
I was sleepless and hurty all weekend and fortunately got a doctor's appointment this morning. The P.A. thought the one on my arm did look a bit like shingles, but not the big nasty one on my neck. So he doesn't think it's shingles. But what? Well, maybe the biggun is infected. (I swear I never ever scratched it.) So I have some antibiotics and some vicodin because the ibuprofen is doing nothing.
The vicodin doesn't seem to be helping the pain but it's only been an hour. Ouch ouch. I am just miserable right now.
All right, thanks for listening to me complain. In return, you're welcome to complain about anything that's bothering you.
