I have had this on and off lower right back ache off and on for about 7 months now. Shortly after it started aching there was a red bruise type rash there which is a very small area but the rash is not consistent with shingles rash and my doctor agreed. It was no blister, bumpy or flaky type rash. It almost looked like blood vessels bursting beneath the skin, almost like a bruise and was completely flat. There was no itching or severe pain. Its a mild dull ache and it intensifies when warm shower water hits it and I feel the aching beneath the skin. My primary doctor is referring me to a dermatologists because he can't figure out what it is. Does anyone here know or is anyone having the same symptoms? My primary doctor ruled out muscle aches, issues with body organs and back disc problems.
