Any experience of Shingles?

I am busy exploring the many, many delights of shingles. Started about 5 days ago and it apparently has wandered down the C2 spinal nerve. It is having a gentle dig at muscles around my clavicle and has also decided to make an appearance on the side of my face (most of it is at the back of my head and hidden by thin stubble).

Has anyone got any experience regarding Class 1 medical and flying? Any ideas how long it is before I would be well enough to fly? At the moment, discomfort and lack of sleep preclude it absolutely.

I have been given aciclovir, but as this was started a bit too late, it doesn't appear to have halted the merry march of my pox.
