Shingles Shingrix shot ... still sore

I've heard that the shingles vaccine makes you sore, but I can assure you that you don't want shingles. I've had it twice. Just got over the last case about a month ago. It lasted around 2 months for me. The virus runs along nerve tracts. Mine came up the left side of my abdomen and chest. 3 days out of those 2 month were about the most painful days I can remember. My side felt as if someone hit me with a baseball bat, breaking ribs etc. My abdomen felt as if I were holding a hornets nest, being stung constantly, for 3 days. Treatment is Gabepentin, an anti-seizure medication that helps with nerve pain. Hydrocodone barely touched the pain, if at all. Gabepentin didn't do much either. I hurt so bad those 3 days I could barely move. I'd say, get the shot. I will at my next appointment with my primary MD. The shot is intramuscular, so it's best to get it when you can be be active and move your arm a lot. It's worse if you get the shot, then come home and go to sleep
Thanks Steve. I had Shingles about 1 year ago and it was not a bad case. I was lucky because my I was complaining about back pain and went to my PT... I took my shirt of and he got on the phone an called and my Primary Doctor... got me in for the anti-viral that day. It cleared up in about 4-6 weeks with limited pain. The new vaccine is not in stock in NY right now and I am on a waiting list. Sorry about your bad case.. Like I said.. I was very lucky my PT saw it.. and acted fast. He had just had the virus himself..
 
Hi...

Any updates on your experience? Thanks for sharing...
Seriously ... just wanted others to know my shoulder was sore. :eek:

Shoulder didn't hurt for long, and no other issues with shot. You have to get the second shot within 6 months, which is end of Jan. I called Walgreens the other day, and still 20 people on waiting list ahead of us (mother also). Wife got her second shot a month ago, and no pain or soreness from it.

They are telling me ... about 2 months. I have not had the 1st one yet. Better to get the two injections.. you don't want the full blow event. I was very.. very lucky the 1st time. I was only about 1 week into the process and I got the meds.. ASAP... I was in pretty bad pain for about two to three weeks but nothing like what others have posted.

Thanks again for your posts. BTW.. I am 62 and got my it about one year ago. Took my insurance company a while to get on board to pay. Good luck to all with this issue. I for one am getting the two injections ASAP.
 
I read the article. The vax is 97.4 % effective in my age group. If you ever had shingles.. you would opt for the two injections. Nerve pain is something that is not touched by reg pain meds and is the worst pain I have ever felt. There are indeed some issues with this vax... the other option is getting full blown shingles... YIKES!

Great to see such a high percentage of the comments to link above are anti-vax.

      No, I don’t want a more effective vaccine. I want to keep my immunity strong by eating organic, sleeping 8 hours a night, exercise, relaxation with music or meditation. And NO Vaccine. No adjuncts of mercury or aluminum that might end up in my brain causing dementia. No thank you.

      I don’t believe that the incontinence a woman commented as a side effect experienced by her husband after having received the vaccine is temporary. I’m curious as to what your comment might be regarding the increase of shingles outbreaks since the introduction of the chicken pox vaccine and it’s having heavily removed the chicken pox virus

  2. People need to learn how to cure their shingles if they should experience it. For starters, do what the Austrians and German doctors do……high dose vitamin C, as a lipospheric vit c, and high dose B vitamins.

    sheldon101, the higher dose flu vaccine that is given to the elderly has never been shown to decrease the incidence or severity of the flu. It was approved solely based on an increase in antibody level in those who received it. So the elderly are being used as guinea pigs.

    When will people understand that when you mess with God’s creation and the normal perfectly capable immine system of healthy people, especially out of greed, you will get burned. You can’t perfect perfection.

    VACCINATION IS NOT IMMUNIZATION!! People please wake up. Big Pharma uses you as their guinea pig. They enlist the help of the FDA, CDC and our Congressmen to make sure by law that infants, toddlers, children, young adults get a schedule of 69-74 vaccinations with the most being given as a child.
    Now they are targeting older adults and the elder with their toxic poisons. You need to research and educate yourselves about vaccines. They are dangerous and deadly. Why would you allow a poison to be injected into your healthy or half healthy body to cause health issues?
    Vaccines are nothing more than a money maker for Big Pharma, doctors, Congressmen, the pushers at the FDA and the CDC. They are ALL complicit in having the pockets lined from Big Pharma.
    Why are so many children sick and dying from “rare” cancers and tumors, have neurological issues, muscle issues, auto-immune issues? The single thread running through all these diseases and “rare” cancers is the vaccines that are loaded with mercury, aluminum, fetal tissue, bovine proteins, etc., just to name a few.
    Go to YouTube and WATCH the series on “The Truth About Vaccines.”

    as with any skull lobotomy, a “temporary side-effect” is great, unless YOU or YOURS are the one(s) that’s injured die, etc.

    My theory for the increase in shingles is this.
    Wild chickenpox is becoming less common, and so people are not being exposed throughout their lives, and therefore boosting their antibodies naturally. So, when their health begins to decline in old age and the zoster is reactivated, there are not enough antibodies to fight it. Deleting the chicken pox (if you even believe THAT vaccine works) just made shingles a whole lot more common for EVERYONE. Or maybe they’ll just keep suggesting more and more boosters and our population decreases to the point of extinction…

      Yes, the article mentions this and I firmly believe this theory is 100% accurate.

    I got the new Shingrix and happy I did !! I had chickenpox at 30ish and shingles at 59. My wife is just getting over shingles. Trust me … you don’t want shingles! Get vaccinated and wear your bandaid proudly.

    There is no evidence established by the scientific method that indicates vaccines do what they are alleged to do. NONE.
    Vaccination is based on a “belief”, that was introduced by Edward Jenner of England, about 1790, and proclaimed by his following, who were interested in profitting. Several Jenner family members died from his experimentation, and the Dr. title was awarded as an “honor” rather than earned via formal study.
    Perhaps the highest scientific authority saying vaccines are contaminated is professor Garth Nicolson, cell biologist and editor of the Journal of Clinical and Experiental Metastasis and the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry. Professor Nicholson is one of the most cited scientists in the world, having published over 600 medical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, edited 14 books, and served on the editorial boards of 28 medical and scientific journals.
    Scientist Nicholson states that not only are vaccines contaminated with mycoplasma but warns the US that we are all being damaged by them and contracting chronic, degenerative diseases.

How are the flat earth society meetings going for you?
Hows that 'bendy water' on your 'world is a globe' theory doing?

Quite magical (and delusional) how water bends around it.

Kind of like how vaxxing is completely effective, unless
someone unvaxxed is around, then it loses it's magic.
 
3 days later and shoulder still sore. The day after the shot I had the feeling of being tired/exhausted. Now I feel fine other than mild shoulder soreness. My wife's shoulder was very sore for a week. Get to do it again in 2 months ... yippee. :confused:
Vaccinations are vital to survive even through they may inc the national autism rate

Do we seriously have a flat earther here?
They've taken lasers and pointed them just above the surface of a VERY long lake.

The water was perfectly straight, didn't bend for miles, though it SHOULD according to the 'Globe theory'.

But HEY, why let the facts get in the way of your preconceived notions.



 
vaccinations are a recent development, yet we seem to have survived for 10s of thousands of years without them....
Mosquitoes have been around for 100 million years ... so now we have identified two species in this thread that should not have survived.

{now you are asking yourself ... did BBP mean mosquitoes and humans, or mosquitoes and anti-vaxxers} :unsure:

I've got it all figured out...vaccines haven't eliminated various deadly contagious diseases, the infected people just fell off the edge of the earth!

Problem solved, who needs Dr's and science?
 
FYI ... they changed the time period on second Shingrix shot from within 6 months ... to within a year. Seems there has been a run on the Shingrix bank. 8-B

Or Dr's who are willing to strap down a defenseless newborn and brutally rip off his foreskin?

"Those that perform infant circumcision are brutal TERRORISTS of male newborns"

I can only speak for myself ... but I preferred the infant thing rather than waiting until consenting age.

You NEVER consent, when the foreskin gets rent, RIGHT after you're F-KING born.

IF you have Netflix; watch "American Circumcision", it may change your mind!

When it comes down to it, it's a basic human right, that's being violated in a
MOST brutal way.

Why no one seems to care is beyond me.


BTW, I noticed on my Birth certificate there's 2 doctors names. The first one I have
to assume birthed me, and the second one; a Dr. Wright, is probably the *******
that did me WRONG.

It's MEANT to INFORM, not entertain, though the way the sicko doctors sneak in and hack off a part of a defenseless newborn's genitalia makes you wonder if THEY consider it entertainment. (maybe THEY are the ones 'into pain and agony' as they 'whack' the foreskin off a defenseless newborn)

I'll NEVER stop pointing out the insane and psychopathic nature of INFANT circumcision! (till it stops)

It's hard 'to chill' when you realize the stark terror and agony a newborn endures while going through this completely unnecessary 'procedure'

I hope, at least, all those baby foreskins are used for some good purpose, and it's not just done to make some amoral foreskin-butcher, called a doctor, wealthier.

Intactivists UNITE!


P.S. How this can go on while people ignore this horrific terrorizing of newborns is beyond me. Where are the defenders of basic human rights, when is comes to
the mutilation of defenseless newborns?

As for the doctors that 'perform the procedure', there HAS got to be a special place in Hell for those heartless, demonic scum.

2good4you - you are doing a fantastic job of pointing out the absurdity of carrying out a barbaric surgical operation on a perfectly healthy newborn. No anaesthetic given for many too. Why not cut off their arm or their small toe etc,etc. You cannot possibly beat nature.
