Patient : I was diagnosed with shingles over a week ago. I was put on some aciclivir 800mg.
I had to see another doctor yesterday as my own gp was busy, i wanted to asked as i have pain in the upper back and left side of my chest - could this be linked even though there is no rash?
My doctor said no but what is your opinion?
