But I have shingles.
I thought I had a spider bite.
I noticed this red spot near my hip bone on Monday and assumed it was a spider bite.
I also noticed that I was in a lot of pain around my back, down my butt and down my leg, but just thought it was from chasing Davis.
Today I woke up and the spot was so painful that I decided I probably had a bite that got infected and better get into the doctor before the weekend.
She took one look and said, that isn't a bug bite, that is shingles.
Then asked me if I had any other symptoms and I told her about the odd pain that started before I noticed the spot and she said, yep, most likely shingles.
Here's to a little Valtrex and Benadryl cream.
