It was my immunologist who told me not to get the Shingrix vaccine - I trust him more.
I wasn't sure what VZV meningitis was so searched. Your doctor "...guess it was caused by VZV meningitis."
Did you have shingles at the time of this optic disc swelling? I think I'd really rather have a positive cause because there are many causes for the swelling.
I have had shingles 2x - hematologist knew it was shingles and boy so did I!
Even having had shingles 2x and knowing I could get it a 3rd time [have a friend who did] I won't get it yet.
I'm very glad you had no complications from the Shingrix vaccine!
Continued good luck drbean!
