Thanks for your concern about my current problem with shingles. I’m glad to be feeling better and deeply appreciate your concern! I’m not comfortable writing about this topic because I am comparing a twelve year old case of celiac disease with a six week old case of Shingle and in which I do not yet have relief from all the symptoms. I am heaven-knows-how-far from the control over the situation.
Are shingles and celiac disease connected? Short answer = yes. Both have hundreds of possible causes and and an equal number of effects. Celiac disease has one sure cure (lifelong adherence to the gluten free diet.) I’m hoping that shingles are equally lucky.
Coconut oil seems to be a valuable home remedy. Rubbing it on the affected areas reduces my discomfort but certainly does not eliminate it.
I’ll keep you posted. Keep in mind that nothing I say about celiac disease and/or shingles is not to be considered medical advice. I do not have the education, the credentials and/or the desire to dispense advice.
