Default Why does my back hurt so badly?

So Tuesday night I changed my rear brake pads, and it required me to contort myself a little up under the car ... so I didn't think much of it when I woke up with a sore back on Wednesday morning. Pain just on the upper left side of the back, so I figure I pulled a back muscle or something.

On Thursday night, I took a muscle relaxer before I went to bed, and when I woke up Friday morning it was even worse. I noticed that the pain had spread to my chest muscles as well. Really bad muscle pull I guess. When I woke up this morning, it was hurting as badly as it had the day before, and the day before that.

When I got out of the shower this morning, I noticed the rash on my chest. Didn't take much 'Googling' to figure out what it was.

Ah, crap.

Ah, okay--saw that when I looked it up, but thought maybe it was a weird spider bite or something nasty that was hiding in the car.

Definitely crossed my mind, was moving some bricks this afternoon and came across a couple of black widows, but I think that would have been much more immediate.

Doctor confirmed it was Shingles .... nothing like asking for Valtrex at your local pharmacy. I can never go back there.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

It's not so bad at this point, but I expect the pain to get worse over the next few days. Got some decent pain meds, but I can't take those at work. Or can I ...

Doesn't Black Widow bites kill within minutes? or is that a myth? I won't Google it because it will show pictures of spiders and that is my biggest fear haha.

Hope you feel better man!

Thanks a lot! Black widow bites take several hours to kill, but the bite is apparently very painful and the skin becomes discolored.

Don't worry about it. Valtrex is for treating the symptoms which come from several different ailments (chicken pox is not too uncommon)...
