Patient : My mom had shingles years ago and now I know that I also have them. I have not gone to the doctor but my mom is sure as am I that it is shingles. I have the rash and the pain and the pins and needle numbness. Is there anything the doctor could do for me or can I just ride this out with pain medication?
