|I have had shingles twice, the first time in 1980 when it infected my right ear, and went down the ear canal and then into my mouth and on the right side of my face and some difficulty with certain words because of the extensive nerve damage to my tongue. Result is 100% hearing loss and total loss of feeling in the right side of my face. Did have a cat a the time, but the doctors never suggested my cat was responsible. Second time about 8 months ago, across my lower back. Still have cats, but feel that second episode was due to stress, not cats.
As painful as shingles are, I would not be able to give up my furry family even if their dander DID cause shingles.....
