As if there wasn't enough to deal with already...

I think I may have shingles. About a week ago I developed this sensitive spot on my shoulder blade...I got a kind of stinging sensation whenever I touched it or if my clothes rubbed on it. Now there's a small rash and it HURTS. First it only hurt when it was touched, but now I'm getting like a stabbing pain beneath the rash. Anyone else ever dealt with this?

I'm 38 weeks and I've been dealing with sciatica off and on the past month. Why did this have to happen now???

Re: As if there wasn't enough to deal with already...

I got shingles early in this pregnancy. It started with a small patch on my shoulder blade, then a slightly bigger patch (like $.50 piece size) developed on my rib cage in front and a few tiny spots sort of connecting the two. The spot on the front got blisters that grew and burst, and scabbed over. It all hurt like hell, but looking back it wasn't THAT bad. I didn't end up taking any medication. I want to say after day 5 it started getting a little better? And after a week and a half or two was pretty cleared up and only bothered me if I accidentally scratched it.
