Shingles - May be more than a pain in the ...

Some fascinating research out of the UK has found a possible link between developing shingles, known medically as herpes zoster, and heart attacks or strokes.  Variables include the age of the patient developing shingles, the location of the outbreak, and many other factors, but this is one observation that clearly deserves more study.  The website symptomfind picked up on this, and interviewed me for an article called:

It's neither long nor full of jargon, so don't be afraid to have a look at it!
