    Was diagnosed with shingles in my ear yet no other rash about 2 years ago. Shortly after I ended up in a cardiologists office for palpitations, shortness of breath, high blood pressure (or rather a roller coaster ride with it) and general weakness . All kinds of tests were done-nothing physical found. Have been having similar symptoms for a while. Blood was taken by the obgyn and high blood pressure plus high potassium levels found. Had been doing super for a year-no meds needed. How can I get anyone to believe me???? Don't want another 6-8 months run around... Thankful for any suggestions.

    I have been taking Plaquenil (generic form) for a couple of months and now I broke out with Shingles AND bronchitis in the same week. After reading about this, I stopped taking the Plaquenil. I am going back to my Rheumatologist tomorrow....he might not be happy that I stopped the Plaquenil but if that drug can cause Shingles....what else can it do to my body?! (I take the Plaquenil for osteoarthritis in my knees and sarcoidosis in my lower legs.)

    I have been on Prolia for over 2 years. I also have lupus. I have shingles. My doctor says the worst case she has seen. I am taking gabapentin for nerve pain. It is not helping.
