I got the first one about a month ago. My arm was a little sore, but only for a day or so.

Actually, I apologize. I admittedly wasn't wearing glasses during a phone post.

I thought Stretch was posting that. My bad.

I had no complications with my shingle vac last January and in the months following. Shingles has devastated my Ma and sisters and one young niece. I am fortunate thus far.

I had it in my 40's after a particularly hard weekend of yard work where I thought I picked up poison ivy. It wasn't until about day 3 or 4 that I was like, did I get the flu? lol, nope......

Thought it was just me. Had my second series shot yesterday morning, been feeling like shit all night long, could not sleep, nightmares, and shoulder muscle is super cramped up.

Had a Hep A vaccination in opposite shoulder yesterday morning as well.

I posted awhile back.....my Ma continues to get her ass kicked by tissue damage(is this possible) and recurrence. This week( at least twice a month ) she suffered from it. The Docs keep suggesting physical therapy( I do not know about this), I have been trying for a couple years to have her get the new vaccine, but she adamantly refuses as she is anti vaccine! She is becoming high maintenance and more stubborn and it is not allowing me to seek decent employment. I have had to turn down multiple decent paying job offers which would take me away from home.....I guess my question is, can the new vaccine work on something this far gone?

Schibbs, I understand to a degree what you are going through. Truly .I empathize .
My own nerve damage is somewhat lower than skin deep. The good vaccine wasn't available to me when Shingles hit me twice within 6 weeks. Upper torso, underarm , right side , all the way around. Then again in the middle of my back.
I hate taking Neurontin... Lidocaine pads and ibuprofen are my friends.
If your deductible is twice the price... Still , get the new vaccine. Really, I mean it.

F.U. Gsniper.

Get back to me after you get your old man Shingles shots as well.


Had the shivers and shakes real bad Saturday. But finally go a good sleep Saturday night and back to normal. Putting up with the sickness for a day and a half after the shots I guess sure beats getting Shingles or Hep A down the road.

I need to go get it. The side effects seem bad, unless you’ve had shingles. Shingles fucking sucks, straight nerve pain and nothing you can do other than medicate.

I've got lots of problems with my back. During an examination before a cortisone shot my neurologist noticed mine were active on my lower back tracking down along my sciatic nerve. He asked and I told him they sometimes flared up in conjunction with my frequent back spasms, always following the same path. He advised that as the episodes happen they result in the formation of deep scar tissue that will become serious.
I am not a MD but think the answer is: Yes, it is more than possible.
