I was ask today if I knew if someone who has had shingles and still in lots of pain, can it turn into fibromyalgia. I didn't know even though I have had shingles several yrs ago. I was lucky and got over them long before I came down with this awful fibro. Can anyone help answer this question. Right now, my pain level is pretty high and I don't think I could handle the terrible pain that shingles causes also. Thanks to anyone that may have some answers.
