For the last two weeks I've had pain (almost a dull aching paing in the muscle) underneath my skin that seems to be moving around my body. It kind of feels like the flu coming on when the skin gets very sensitive. Funny thing is that it's only on the right side of my body. It started at the top of my right leg, near my groin and then started toward my knee. The pain is now near my stomach, and lower back. I also feel this pain on my right temple. Anyone have any thoughts as to what may be causing this? Thanks, Ken

  • Does it feel like your muscles are starting to cramp?

  • no doesn't feel like cramping muscles. It feels like the flu is coming on, when the skin gets very sensitive. Don't shingles show on the outside of the skin? My skin looks very normal on the outside.

  • Sounds like shingles even more...flu like feeling...the majority of people with shingles may claim to have outbreaks, but it could still be shingles in the pre-breaking out stage or just supressed enough to not break out...yes, it could be shingles...there may be blood tests...I'm not sure..
