Liver?? What else?? Appendix? My husband is complaining that his RT side has been hurting him badly.. and that it was "hard" last night and it hurt if he even touched it...? And its still hurting him badly today, but he still went to work.. Would Shingles do that?? I know it runs in the nerve lines..and the torso is where a lot of people get pain, and usually on one side.. I ask about Shingles because he also has had a weird "rash".. on his back for a few days now..(looks like its starting to heal though).. The rash looks like the one he got several years back when he was doing a sheet metal job (duct work) in an animal lab... I guess a LOT of the guys working the job got it too... Kinda creepy if you ask me.. The doc at the time said it was some sort of virus... and it eventually did go away.. But still makes ya wonder what they were doing in that lab.. Annnyways, wondering if this rash could be Shingles..? I dont really think it is because the Shingles rashes i have seen were bigger kinda open sores or spots...And this rash it small little red dots.. (kinda like a heat rash).. *sigh* I dont know.. hes also got a nasty cold.. hes a hot mess.. About time to trade him in for a newer model..
