The incidence of adult shingles has increased by 90 percent from 1998 to 2003, following the release of the chickenpox vaccine for mass use. Shingles results in three times as many deaths and five times as many hospitalizations as chickenpox, and accounts for 75 percent of all medical costs associated with the varicella zoster virus.

Even children are beginning to come down with shingles, as evidenced by school nurse reports since 2000, which was one of the concerns prompting Dr. Goldman to warn the CDC that it may be bringing about a shingles epidemic.

Prior to chickenpox vaccination, shingles was seen only in adults.

Re: CHICKEN POX VACCINE CAUSING SHINGLES?
I think you're right, OP. Poster above is right as well, stress exacerbates shingles, though I suppose it's hard not to feel stressed when experiencing the pain of an outbreak of shingles! It is a type of herpes called herpes zoster.

Here's more info on shingles:

Shingles causes a painful rash of small blisters that appear on one side of the body, often in a band on the chest and back. Shingles is caused by a virus called varicella zoster. This is the same virus that causes chickenpox.

Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox re-activates itself in your body.

After you have had chickenpox, the virus stays in nerve cells in your spinal cord for the rest of your life. Usually, the virus lies dormant and doesn't cause any problems. But if your immune system, which normally protects your body against infection, is weakened, the virus can become active again. If this happens, it causes shingles.

Shingles is very common - one in five people are affected at some point in their life. It can affect you at any age, but it's more common in elderly people.


Symptoms of shingles

The first symptom of shingles is often oversensitivity or a painful burning sensation in the affected area, usually your chest. A rash will then develop. The rash usually appears as a band, following the route of a nerve supply to your skin. At first, it consists of small red raised spots. The spots then turn into small blisters filled with a cloudy fluid. These blisters dry up after five to seven days and gradually form scabs. The scabs drop off within two to three weeks.

The pain caused by shingles is often severe and may stay after the rash has gone.


Complications of shingles

Shingles can lead to a number of complications.

Because the virus affects your nerves, the pain may continue after the rash has cleared, sometimes lingering for weeks, months or even years. This is called post-herpetic neuralgia. It's more common in older people and in people who had a severe rash.

Shingles can affect the skin around your eyes (ophthalmic zoster). This can give you red and streaming eyes (conjunctivitis) and may damage your eyes or affect your vision. If you have shingles around your eyes you may need to see an ophthalmologist (a doctor who specialises in eye conditions).

Shingles can sometimes affect your ears. It can cause earache, dizziness, deafness and paralysis on one side of your face. This is called Ramsay Hunt syndrome. The pain tends to go away within 48 hours, but post-herpetic neuralgia or permanent nerve damage may occur.

Encephalitis (inflammation of your brain) is a very rare complication of shingles. It causes fever, seizures and confusion.

I don't know if it's true, but I read that Ascaris worms in a body can cause shingles

Aside from some Hulda Clark websites, I couldn't find any other references to this.

Although it may perhaps also be a cause of shingles, in either case it's much more likely for people in the United States to come in contact with the Chicken Pox vaccine than being infected by parasitic worms.

It only makes sense that if the virus is injected into the body it could reactivate later. And I feel that all the vaccines stress the immune system to the point that shingles is probably inevitable. It seems logical to me, but any pediatrician would beg to differ, I'm sure.
