Shingles Pain

The pain of shingles is, for many people, quite striking in its severity. Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, results from a reactivation of infection with the varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has had chickenpox may develop shingles later in life, although it is most common in older people. Shingles can appear many years after the initial chickenpox infection.
