I have been to a doctor five days after I have the rash. He told me that I had the shingle. Since it had been more than three days after the on set of the shingle outbreak, he did not prescribed any anti viral medicine and told me just let the disease run it's course.
My shingle blisters are very small. They do not itch much. It seems to me it is a mild case. I started to take L Lysin a couple of days ago. L Lysin helped me to get over canker sores very quickly before. Both shingle and canker sore are caused by herpes virus. I don't know if it is related, but my muscle pain seems to have gone. I have not eaten any breakfast, i don't know if my stomach will be bloated today. I have no fever. I don't feel run down. I don't think I have another infection besides shingle. Thanks for the advice.
Have you seen a Dr.?
Are you being treated for this viral infection , with what medication and what dose and for how long?
I suspect you have an infection besides the shingles, and that you have not and are not being treated for the herpes nor the potential infection, which by the way I hope I am wrong.
Oldtsan can you please clarify the situation, and answer my doubts? so we can try to help you.
If not I suggest you seek immediate medical attention, better safe than sorry, specially with health issues.

Just because you'd had them for 3 days was no reason to not treat with anti virals. They can still shorten the course of the illness. Shingles don't cause stomach pain other then a burning pain at the site of the shingles. They definately don't cause bloating.
I just found out I have shingles. Started with lower back pain and stabbing pain in bottom stomach 4 days ago. Yesterday started seeing blisters. The doctor said that the pain in my stomach wasn't caused by shingles so issued a CT scan. Found nothing. But today my stomach is extremely swollen with stabbing pains. It feels like my side is going to tear where the blisters are every time I move. And now the pain in my lower back has moved to my spine. I can't get any relief from the pain and ibuprofen is not touching the pain. Anybody having this problem. Please advise
I have had shingles for 5 weeks now with a swelling of my abdomen and the same pain you are talking about. I take pain pills all day long to get through this. I still have a rash on my stomach and side and back. I also have back pain. I had shingles for 9 days before the rash appeared and I started on antiviral medication for 7 days. Some of the pain got better but still have bad abdominal contractions and pain all the time.
