How am I 15 and have the shingles?
I'm not sure if I've ever had chickenpox before, I'm the youngest in my family and my parents don't recall me ever having it. well on Wednesday of last week, that's was a random sharp pain in my left upper back & chest. I thought it was nothing but a muscle because I have been doing some workouts. until the pain started to get more and more severe, I told my mom and she said she'd take me to the hospital. I refused to go (I'm stupid I know) and Friday came along, I noticed a bump on my chest between my breasts. I though it was a pimple so I tried popping it... not the best idea.. Saturday I woke up with my back & chest STILL hurting! I felt my chest, and there was over 15 bumps bunched together on my chest. so Sunday (yesterday) I went to the hospital, and they said I had shingles. I had few of the symptoms, the bumps spread across my upper chest now is a line. they prescribed medication for me, but Vicodin hardly works. IM 15! i have to take 7 pills everyday. I hear only 60+ people of age get it. and I don't have much friends and I don't go out and none of my family members have it. they say I've been under alooot of stress. how is this even possible? unless my parents don't have the greatest memory and I probably did have chickenpox. sorry this is very long, thanks for reading & any explanations?
