NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Lin-Manuel Miranda thought he had a migraine. It turns out the Broadway star really had shingles.
Miranda tweeted on Thursday the diagnosis was caught early, but he’s been quarantined from his 8-week-old son. He jokingly said his ophthalmologist had blurred his eyes and he’s wearing a mask and posted a “Phantom of the Opera” gif.READ MORE: 16-Year-Old Charged With Capital Murder In Connection To Camran Kashawn Collier Slaying
He later explained more on Twitter saying, “Not wearing a mask. My eyes are fine, they were just dilated for the checkup, which is routine. Staying at my folks’ house, up the street.”READ MORE: Suspect In Custody Following DPS Chase In Johnson County
