In brief: Shingles can cause

severe pain followed within a few days by a rash.
It usually appears in a particular location on one side of the body. The rash burns intensely, itches & is made up blisters that open up & crust over. Possible sx: fever, chills, headache and generalized aches & pains wi fatigue. Most cases of shingles last 3 to 5 weeks. Usually 1 to 5 days after one experiences pain/burning in a specific area,
