Joseph,
Shingles are chicken pox of the nerves and you can only get shingles if you have previously had the pox. The virus remains dormant until something triggers it to activate. There is an after effect that can come as a result and cause lasting pain. It's called PHN (post-herpetic neuralgia)

I had shingles when I was stationed in Viet Nam umpteen years ago. They followed a major nerve network from the middle of my spine around the left side of my body to a point in the center of my stomach. Six years ago, I developed PHN and have been in constant pain ever since and it has limited many things which I can't do anymore.

Read up on it more at this link:

I have taken many of the drugs they recommend with little success and the side effects can be worse than the cure. Now I just live with the pain.
