Is there a connection between shingles and autoimmune disoders such as lupus?Asked by Anonymous 2006-08-17 16:19:15 ago.
I'm 24 years old and have been getting shingles since the age of 9 in the same spot around once a year. I have been doing a little researcha and have many symptoms of lupus. I'm tired all the time yet expierence frequent insomnia, I'm taking meds for depression and anxiety. I have severe hair loss for my age and while i was pregnant about 7 months ago i had gone to the emergency room for chest pains and headaches. They found inflammation of some kind but did not know the cause of it. I have sensitivity to the sun, infact if i sunburn or am outside to long i break out in hives on the exposed skin.
