Husband had it a year ago. very severe case facial nerves affected and lost hearing in right ear. Son received chicken pox vaccine and developed an upper respiratory infection, and my husband had sinus infection. Within 14 days, husband got Facial Shingles! Ramsey Hunt Syndrone. He was uner care of optimologist for 6 months and vision is pretty good, but blurs when he is tired. He didn't work for 12 weeks. Very bad stuff.
