Pain is usually the first symptom of shingles. For some, it can be intense. Depending on the location of the pain, it can sometimes be mistaken for a symptom of problems affecting the heart, lungs or kidneys. Some people experience shingles pain without ever developing the rash.

Since your physician diagnosed you with shingles and prescribed the appropriated type of medication, you now know the cause of the pain.
