I got it shortly after having a elbow operation. If I remember right when I went to doctors she said I was 1 day to late for treatment so had to let it run its course with just cream.
Bloody agony. And left scars.
Seemingly you can get it when your feeling a bit low or not 100%.

Careful with the Co-codamol, they have tendency to make you a bit “egg bound” if I remember correctly. May need some syrup of figs to counter. Hope it gets better. Good luck.

Hope you get it sorted ASAP Harry, my old man had a couple of bouts of it across his back and he reckoned it was bloody painful.

As above, watch the cocodamol As they do have a profound effect upon the exit plumbing. Straight from someone who’s been taking them for about 10 years!

They work on me brilliantly but then give me heart burn. So, when I do have to take one I have to take a heart burn tablet at the same time. And they bung you up. 🙄

Get well Arry. đź‘Ť

Ask the doc about the shingles vaccine Arry, l know its too late for this bout but may prevent any further flare ups.
For other MDers, you can get it on the NHS if you are 70 and over.
