Painful ulcers in lower lip

Is it possible to have Shingles on my lower lip?  I have never ever had a cold sore or fever blisters but woke to have two circular VERY painful ulcers (8-10) on each side of my lower lip.  My lip is also red and 2-3 times the regular size. I have lost 5 lbs (in 4 days) as I cannot eat correctly and am drinking weak soups and teas.  I had the Shingles once before on my abdomen and quite well remember the burning pain that comes with them.  They look similar too.
I have had a rare gray spot on m gums in the past usually related to dental work.  This lip problem is nothing like the gum ulcer or boil I have experienced.  I have had a very low grade fever and the chills and feel quite unwell.  I have a dr appointment next week and cannot get in any sooner.  Thanks!
