Outbreak of shingles. Why weakness, dizziness, nausea and rashes even after shot? Permanent treatment?

Doctors are running a number of blood tests. Have had serious outbreaks with shingles the past three years. Took a shingles shot in January of this year had a 10 day reaction but some relief for a few months from shingles. Now, body has been running a temp of 94-96 for several weeks. I m weak, dizzy, often nauseous, have broken out with rashes that include itching a couple of times. For months, even prior to the shot, I ve been experiencing, numbness and tingling in right hand and fingers and sides of face. Get 3 or 4 days feeling decent, then, can barely move. In bed much of the time. Ideas, suggestions?
