You are Henry VIII and I claim my jug of mead.

In all seriousness, I hear it's very painful. Lots of water apparently.

Go to quacks & get anti inflammatory drugs. They only give naproxen out now. They work, but not as quickly as diclofenic which you can’t get now. But yeah, you have my sympathy because it bloody hurts!!

You can still get diclofenic. Or Voltarol as it's also known as.

Not trying to hog the thread but I didn't want to start a new one and clog up the snug.

I have had really bad pain in my shoulder blade and back of my upper arm for about 4 days. I was taking pain killers and blaming my missus who insists on leaving the bedroom window open all night.

I hardly slept in 3 days over the pain and last night discovered a huge rash on the shoulder blade which is now throbbing and burning along with the muscle pain.

My missus who worked for 35 years in a pharmacy dispensing medicine thinks I have the shingles.

I'm off to the docs in the morning, anyone on here had this, google is giving me some conflicting time spans for this to clear up.

Edit. Oh yeah and because she is an expert on all things like this she says this is a form of herpes and I am now banned from going anywhere near her :oops:

I had shingles a few years ago. Extremely unpleasant but with some bizarre symptoms - only affects one side of the body, for instance. Wore off after 10 days or so, but left me feeling a bit dented to say the least.

It’s the chickenpox virus which remains dormant in our nerve endings (or something) after recovering. Can come back at any time - i was at my fit & healthiest when it happened.

Had this 2 or 3 times and hurts like a b*stard son of a bitch, been taking this stuff for years now and has not come back, could just be a coincidence, but might be worth a try

It's hereditary, isn't it? I've heard you either have it or you don't, and diet can bring it on.

Bloke I work with, he's only 32 but gets it bad. Drinks water like a fish, or else if he gets dehydrated it brings it on. In fact there's another bloke I work with in his 50's who keeps getting attacks and was hobbling around last week. Another bloke I worked with had it constantly, but then he used to drink so much wine we nicknamed him Captain Rioja.

Anyway, it's surprisingly common.

They're not painkillers , they're sleeping tablets and can you tell her to leave the long ladder out next time , I nearly broke my bleedin' neck last week .

Yes, now it's off-script & over the counter.
ALWAYS take after eating food or on a full stomach.

Sounds more like syphilis, ageing.
Watch out for signs of the last stage - insanity, when one can start imagining that great, English, West Ham players, are really Irish.

Only joking mate! I'm sure your good lady is right. Well, TOMoS thinks so..

Yeah it sounded like shingles to me when I read your post,

I've never had shingles or gout. They are conditions that seem more connected with the past (in my head)

But they are still going strong even today.

Seem very troublesome illnesesssss.
