No - not on my roof - in my eye!!!!
I started to get a painful eye and swelling around the eye last night. It became very painful. I bathed it in salt and water. After a restless night I was still in pain. I went to the After Hours doctor and she has diagnosed SHINGLES!
I wish I could have at least developed it on my arm or back and not my eye. It feels like someone is poking me in the corner of my eye with a metal knitting needle! Worse than the worst toothache I have ever had. I have some anti-viral medication and painkillers. Not helping much yet. If I am no better tomorrow, I have to go back to the Doctor.
I didn't even think I had ever had chicken pox, but apparently I must have had it in the past to have now developed shingles.
I don't have lots of spots - just a small red patch on my cheek below my eye.
Wish me luck to get rid of this pain quickly.
I'm such a ball of fun lately - NOT...
