I have been reading about shingles - old threads as well as on the internet - and i am wondering if having fibro makes one more vulnerable to outbreaks. I have them frequently and yet articles on the net say it is rare to have more than one outbreak. Also, every article i've read says you always get them on one side of the body. The place i get them is - i'm embarassed to say - is in a line which starts at the top of the crease of my buttocks and goes upward about 4 to 5 inches. So it's dead center in my body. I can't find anywhere any info on having shingles in that particular location. anyone know?
