    I had my first case of shingles when I was 26 and pregnant. It was on my neck by my collar bone. I have had them close to the same spot 3 other times since then, I am now 28. luckily I had a mild case all three times. I woke up last night with the worst sharp stinging pain In my back below my shoulder blade. It feels like it did the last time I got them only this is the first time in this spot and hurts worse then the 3 previous times. Hoping that's not what this is!

    I do take Lysine pretty much daily, and this ammino acid works against this type condition. <BR>

    Too, perhaps the grapeseed extract I've taken for a long time has given me protection too....think about the grapseed ex for yourself.

    My 1st outbreak was at 19. I got them about once a year for a long time than started getting them more often. Now at 39 I'm getting them almost every other month. I keep getting them near the same place, upper left cheek (back side, not face).
