I went to ER with severe pain in my lower left abdomen, I thought for sure it was kidney stones or something very serious. cT scan came back normal so I was told I probably had gas. I was so upset because this was some excruciating pain. The morphin they gave me relived to some extent so went home and went to bed. The next morning same severe pain so I was lucky enough to get into a gastro doctor and he said it's an infection in my digestive tract and started me on antibiotics. 2 days later pain is so bad I went to urgent care just to see if I could get pain releif, I had started feeling a strange skin sensation on my left upper thigh and groin area, and that's when the urgent care doc saw the tiny little blister on my upper left thigh. So I have shingles, and all the severe pain leading up to it felt like I had something wrong with my lower stomach and or kidney area. I am now on Valtrex for 2 days and the symptoms of belly pain are not as bad but my skin hurts so bad and it's a deep deep ache. I hope I can get over this soon. Just thought my experience might help someone to understand what's going on in the same situation.
