Oh, sisters! My DD has shingles in her eye!!!! She started out with what they thought might be a fever blister on her eyelid. The nurse told her to get some medicine that we couldn't even find. She went this moing to the ER and was diagnosed with shingles. She is so distraught! She says that it feels like there are bugs crawling in her eye!!! YUCH! Please say a prayer for her that she will recover quickly. She had shingles when she was about 4 years old on her thumb. I guess the stress of the past week hasn't helped!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
Update: The ER doc gave her some medication and Benydryl to take. She is feeling much better already. Her eye is still really bloodshot and itchy, but she can sleep now.
Thanks everyone for the prayers. I KNOW that helped more than the meds!
Goodness gracious!! Shingles in the eye..That is horrible. I have seen it many times in the hospital. Please tell her to take her meds diligently. Near and around the eye can be dangerous is left untreated. Glad she is feeling better. Poor thing. Stress can do terrible things to the body. It is a big factor in bringing out Shingles.
