Internal shingles is when your nervous system is attacked with like chicken pox symptoms through out your body. You feel pain like and flu like symptoms all over and then you get rashes with blisters appearing in your body.

It is caused by the same virus as chicken pox, Varicella zoster. Shingles occurs when the virus reactivates after being dormant. It may cause a rash or infect organs internally.


Answer by  elb (1105)

Shingles is the reactivation of the chickenpox virus later in life, always along the path of a nerve. Instead of pain and blisters on the skin, internal shingles refers to reactivated zoster virus in an internal organ. Some doctors say it's extremely rare; others diagnose it more readily.
