So stressing over diagnoses, treatment, tests, etc. I developed shingles which caused a rare form of neuropathy, resulting a lower abdomen bulge, with groin pain. thought I had developed a hernia on top of everything else.
The shingles symptoms seemed to start after a gym workout, where I was using a machine that works the obliques, the pain started from that area later in the day, so I assumed I strained a muscle
4 days later the skin rash appeared. Really intense pain around the torso mid section around the back and down the right thigh, kicked my *** for over 3 weeks, what a way to start treatment..
the moral of my story, reduce stress with whatever means available, you don't want to activate this dormant virus. If you've had chicken pox you have this waiting for a trigger..
