Thank you so much. I've been trying to figure this out since it started on a Holiday week-end and I couldn't consult with anyone. I will ask my Dr. about the Imitrex so I can control this awful pain. I'm slowly getting better, but really have stayed in my dark room resting, missing the Holiday fun! Your information has helped me a great deal.View Thread
Dear Dr., About 2+ years ago, I got shingles in my right eye and a small rash on my forehead. My scalp was also very sore. It began with a migraine headache and I never suffered from headaches before. Now once in a while I get a migraine and for the past four days I have had an awful migraine, which I wonder if it could be an after effect of the shingles. I was under some stress last week and this was the worst migraine yet. What do you think? Could it be related to my bout of Shingless still? Thank youView Thread
