AUG 5, ’14   SHINGLES!!!!!!!

AND I DON’T MEAN THE ONES ON YOUR ROOF!!!!!!!!!

Definition

Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although shingles can occur anywhere on your body, it most often appears as a single stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or the right side of your torso.

Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you’ve had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near your spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles.

While it isn’t a life-threatening condition, shingles can be very painful. Vaccines can help reduce the risk of shingles, while early treatment can help shorten a shingles infection and lessen the chance of complications.

Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of shingles usually affect only a small section of one side of your body. These signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain, burning, numbness or tingling
  • A red rash that begins a few days after the pain
  • Fluid-filled blisters that break open and crust over
  • Itching

Some people also experience:

  • Fever and chills
  • General achiness
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

Pain is usually the first symptom of shingles. For some, it can be intense. Depending on the location of the pain, it can sometimes be mistaken for a symptom of problems affecting the heart, lungs or kidneys. Some people experience shingles pain without ever developing the rash.

Most commonly, the shingles rash develops as a stripe of blisters that wraps around either the left or right side of your torso. Sometimes the shingles rash occurs around one eye or on one side of the neck or face.

WELL— I KNOW MANY OF MY MCS SISTERS KNOW WHAT SHINGLES ARE– BECAUSE OVER THE YEARS SOME HAVE ASKED ME– WHAT TO DO NATURALLY FOR SINGLES!!!

WELL YA LL KNOW I LOST THE CAP OFF OF A TOOTH– THAT HAD A ROOT CANAL— & THAT WAS SEVERAL DAYS AGO— & I COULD NOT GET INTO THE ORAL SURGEON ON LAST FRIDAY— SO I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON AUG 12, ’14 WITH AN ORAL SURGEON I DON’T KNOW!!!

BUT THIS ROOT CANAL– & TOOTH HAVE BEEN PUMPING POISON INTO MY SYSTEM FOR A LONG TIME NOW— NOT JUST SINCE I LOST THE CAP OFF OF MY TOOTH!!!!

MY STOMACH IS SORE– BLOATED & RAW FROM THE POISON- & I HAVE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING NATURALLY TO HEAL MY STOMACH AS I DON’T TAKE ANY KIND OF CHEMICAL DRUGS AT ALL OF ANY KIND!!!

WELL TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORTER— I THOUGHT MY LIVER WAS GIVING ME SHOOTING PAINS ON MY RIGHT SIDE– AS I HAVE LOTS OF PROBLEMS WITH MY LIVER &  HAVING MCS– & HAVING TO LIVE IN A WORLD THAT EVERYONE THINKS THEY HAVE TO USE TOXIC KILLING CHEMICALS!!!

SO I HAD BEEN VERY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH SHARP PAINS ON MY RIGHT SIDE— THEN A RASH STARTED & IT ITCHED—- FIRST I THOUGHT BUG BITE– THEN IT WAS A BIG RASH & I THOUGHT CHEMICALS WORKING OUT OF MY SYSTEM—- BUT IT GOT BIGGER & THEN BLISTERS– & ITCH— THEN IT BEGAN TO START ON MY LOW BACK & MY HIP– & ALL AROUND MY WAIST & HURT!!!!!!!!! REALLY HURT—- THEN IT HIT ME— WELL DUMMY– IT IS SHINGLES!!!!!!

I HAD HEARD OF SHINGLES– BUT NEVER EVER HAD THEM—- SO TODAY AFTER WE VOTED WE WENT TO SEE MY NATURAL DOCTOR– AND HE SAID— TO START ON LECITHIN FOR MY NERVOUS SYSTEM– & OF COARSE MY B COMPLEX THAT I ALWAYS TAKE— & TO START ON KRILL OIL & L-LYSINE & BETA GLUCAN & TO TAKE MY SOVEREIGN SILVER INSIDE IN DROPS IN WATER & ON THE OUTSIDE ON THE SHINGLES WITH A COTTON BALL!! AND TO INCREASE MY VIT C!!!

I AM NOT A DOCTOR– & I AM NOT TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO– I AM REPORTING ON WHAT I AM DOING—–

ALL I CAN SAYS IS— WHEN THEY SAY SHINGLES HURT—- THEY ARE NOT KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’M SURE THIS TOOTH HAS CAUSED A LOT OF PROBLEMS I AM NOT TOTALLY AWARE OF!!!!

STRESS— POISON FROM MY TOOTH– AND –IMMUNE SYSTEM LOW— ETC- ETC- ETC- ETC— HAVE NOW LEAD TO SHINGLES!!!!   ONE PROBLEM I HAVE NEVER HAD UNTIL NOW!!!!!!!!

I HAD BEEN REALLY REALLY REALLY DIZZY—FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS OR LONGER NOW– & I AM SURE THAT WAS A WARNING SIGN ALSO OF MORE THEN ONE HEALTH PROBLEM!!!

SO FOR MY MCS SISTERS WHO HAVE HAD A BATTLE WITH SHINGLES IN THE PAST—- I HAVE A GREAT UNDERSTANDING OF THE PAIN THAT GOES WITH THEM!!!!!! I TALKED THIS MORNING WITH A WOMAN WHO HAS HAD SHINGLES MORE THEN ONCE– & SHE SAID SHE LAID IN BED  CRIED!!!! WELL I DON’T SEE HOW THAT IS GOING TO HELP ANYTHING— SO EVEN THROUGH IT HURTS ENOUGH TO MAKE YA WANT TO CRY—- I THINK I MAY TAKE A NAP & LET MY BODY REBUILD & HEAL!!!!!!!!!!!

THANKS FOR THE E-MAILS– YOUR SUPPORT & YOUR CARING— AS ALWAYS & YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!! LATER GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I fortunately have not had them but my son and a friend have. Both described the pain as the worst they had ever had. I will pray for your speedy recovery. ❤

    Hi Sonda. Sorry to hear about your continuing troubles. I had shingles and double pneumonia shortly after moving to Ireland. I guess the stress of moving to a different country was too much for my immune system. I didn’t have it too bad though – just a stripe across one side of my back. It meant I couldn’t wear my bra for a while but I took that as a good thing. I hate bras. 🙂 I had an eldery aunt who got shingles in her eye – OUCH!
    The traditional doctor couldn’t offer me anything for the shingles so I’m glad you’ve got a natural doctor to help you. I hope it clears up soon. ❤

  3. Are you taking methylated Bs for it? I remember reading on that!! Get well soon sweetie!!! ((Hugs))

  4. I have had shingles. Here’s my Appalachian mountain remedy for treating the itch and burning: Mix ground slippery elm bark (can be bought at a health food store; I ordered a fairly large quantity from Amazon) with Vaseline and rub over shingles rash. It may be a little gritty but that’s okay and, of course, will be greasy from the Vaseline, so put on old cotton clothes over it. When I had shingles I felt like firecrackers were shooting off under my skin, and this stopped all that. I call this my “miracle salve.” We use it on all kinds of skin problems, rashes, ecxema, even hemorrhoids. 🙂

    • I CAN’T USE VASELINE — AS Petroleum jelly, the main ingredient in Vaseline, is a derivative of oil refining. MY MCS WON’T allow ME TO USE VASELINE WITHOUT GETTING VERY VERY ILL— I WONDER IF I COULD MIX THE SLIPPERY ELM BARK WITH ALL NATURAL COCONUT OIL???????? THANKS FOR YOUR SUGGESTION— AND FIRECRACKERS GOING OFF UNDER MY SKIN– IS A VERY GOOD DESCRIPTION!!! 🙂 I HAVE USED Colloidal Silver ON A COTTON BALL ON THE BLISTERS TODAY– AS MY NATURAL DOC SAYS IT WILL KILL VIRUSES & I KNOW IT WILL— BUT AM THINKING OF USING ALOE VERA TONIGHT — AS IT REALLY HURTS!!!!!! THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR MIRACLE SALVE RECIPE–

      • I’ll bet coconut oil would work. It might be worth a try. I was wondering about the Vaseline. It doesn’t bother me, although so many other things do. I use coconut oil for so many things, just haven’t tried it in my salve… Well, now that I’ve written all that, I just made up a little batch using organic coconut oil and rubbed it into my hand. I think it would work fine. I put a good bit of the slippery elm bark into the mix.

      • Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow we will see if our health food store has slippery elm— I am out– I use it for A sore throat!!!! AS ELVIS WOULD SAY– THANK YA– THANK YA– THANK YA VERY MUCH!!!!!! 🙂

  5. A dear friend of mine recently got over a nasty case of them. I am so sorry you are dealing with this. Get better soon.

  6. sladow says:

    I have not had them (yet) and hope not to…as soon as I’m old enough to have the vaccine, I’m doing it. I have watched both of my parents suffer through this…..I hope you feel better soon!

    This is probably a stupid question, but have you tried an oatmeal bath?

    • I DON’T DO CHEMICAL DRUGS OR VACCINES— AT ALL OF ANY KIND—-WITH MY MCS— BUT NO– I HAVE NOT TRIED AN OAT MEAL BATH– AS I CAN’T USE OATMEAL WITH OUT BREAKING OUT IN HIVES– 🙂 SO I DON’T THINK I WANT TO TAKE A BATH IN IT!!!! 🙂 THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTIONS!!!!! BLESSINGS–

  7. Stephanie says:

    I’m sorry. I hope you heal quickly.
    I had shingles when I was 12 (I thought they were zits 🙂 ). Fortunately, it was a very mild case. My husband got shingles and I immediately knew what they were so I shipped him to the doctor. Because they caught them early, his case was mild. We have been lucky.

    • WE ARE LEARNING ALL ABOUT SHINGLES!!!! 🙂 I HAD OVER 150 E-MAILS FROM MCS SISTERS THIS MORNING– SHARING INFORMATION & WHAT THEY HAD DONE NATURALLY FOR THEIR SHINGLES– I APPRECIATE ALL THE INFORMATION & SUGGESTIONS & SUPPORT FROM EVERYONE!!!!
