The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    anyone ever had shingles?

    i think im getting it now, which is wonderful considering ive already got a separated shoulder and strained back.

    anyone had it before? is it bad? im starting to get bumps down my left back/thigh, just a few now but more and more are appearing i think.
    any tips or anything?

    Why do you think they're shingles? It could just be a completely unrelated rash.

    Shingles can be quite painful and can cause some chronic pain problems. They're always one-sided (if it is indeed shingles).

    Update us after the doctor visit.

    Shingles are not quite that easy to get rid of. They're essentially a flare up of a chicken pox infection. The virus gets reactivated and travels up your nerves (which is why it's so painful). What causes the reactivation is believed to be stress, but is more likely due to a weakening of the immune system (high stress = weakened immune system!).

    What I'm getting at is that it sometimes takes a while to get rid of them and the creams and things the doc may give you are usually to help with the symptoms, not the cause, although I'm assuming standard antivirals may now be perscribed....something we didn't have the benefit of just a few years back.

    Have you ever even had chicken pox? Because if you haven't these aren't shingles you have.

    let us know what the doc said.
