I have much improved over the last few days. I still hurt at times but the intensity has gone down. I'm out of the LorTabs and that is ok now. A little ibuprofen is what I'm using now. I still have some antivirals I'm taking but the predisone is also over with.
The steroids helped my symptoms and I suppose still will for a while. My workout with Marsha last week went very well balance-wise and if it weren't for the shingles it may have been even better. We'll see how long this little stint helps.
Work is better under control with our new person Aaron. He is working out very well and my stress level is down because of it.
