Shingles.

Suck.
So, before leaving for Chicago for a work trip (right after returning from the UK from a work trip) I noticed an odd pain in my chest/armpit area. It felt skin level, but there was no rash, so I ignored it and went to Chicago. Worked all week, including a bunch of workouts (long runs/plyo stuff/some weights, depending on the day)
Then played a tryout ultimate tournament (Easterns), played decently, but felt fatigued frequently, which wasn’t good.. and the whole time I had pain/itching/etc all over my left side.. which kept getting worse.
Finally, Monday, I went to the walk in clinic (not being near my primary Dr), and poof, found out I had Shingles.. and was given a suite of drugs to help me get over it.
had to then leave that evening to go to Dublin, IR, so I did. Spent the week in Ireland exhausted, but managed to get through everything.. but man.. getting home from there..
The last three days, I make it 10 minutes before my whole body just feels fatigued.. so here’s to crossing fingers that this all goes away soon.
