    My Mum had it when I was little - my brothers were 5 and 3 and I was 3 weeks old and breastfeeding - all the kids had chicken pox and mum got shingles. She said it was so incredibly painful she could only wear a silk scarf for a top.
    I hope you're over it quickly.

    Yep. I've had it twice while breastfeeding. It's so painful and exhausting. Hopefully it passes quickly!
