Answer to Question 44: Herpes Zoster is the medical name for what? SHINGLES

Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. After you get better from chickenpox, the virus "sleeps" (is dormant) in your nerve roots. In some people, it stays dormant forever. In others, the virus "wakes up" when disease, stress, or aging weakens the immune system.

Last preseason question: In my favourite TV show, what does Qi stand for?

Thanks for running it ashman.
I'm sure that everybody has told you that it has been much more than interesting.
It has been quite educational as well.
