Shingles

Well not able to ride for awhile as I came down with Shingles and they are really painful. Anyone have any idea how long it takes to get rid of them?

Brother, I feel your pain! I had such a bad case, two years ago, that I ended up in the hospital for three days. It was the worst pain I've ever experienced...and I've had some severe injuries! After I left the hospital it took about 10 days for the skin to heal but I still have scars and I still take medication for nerve pain! (Not pain medication, but actually an anti-seizure med used for nerve pain)
I don't know about you but the worst of the pain was not so much the skin but it was my muscles in that area that were knotted up so tight, I was howling!
Once you are completely healed up, get the vaccine! Because you CAN get it again...

Well I would get the vaccine if I was allowed to get it but do to getting a Liver transplant in 2013 they forbid me to get the vaccine for this and a lot of other things. Just have to stick it out and hope it does not come back.

InkyDoggy, so sorry you're dealing with this. Known several people that have had it, but I never have. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers with your permission, and be hoping for a quick healing.
