DonfromPA's blog: Shingles It Turned Out to Be

Posted on Mar 15, 2019 9:09 AM

Checked in with my eye doctor this morning after experiencing rash on my left eyelid this morning and eye nearly swollen shut.
He confirmed that it was shingles but exam showed that it was not affecting the nerve that goes into the eyeball. He explained that usually there is little or no pain involved when it attacks nerves in the head, although perpetual headaches for a month or two can be expected. I was worried about my eyes as my left eye is my good one while my right eye is virtually useless. Am scheduled for
eye surgery sometime in April or May to have cataracts removed. Well anyway, I feel much relieved.
