    Digestive Issues w/Shingles?

    Going on two weeks now since rash first appeared, finished a week of anti-viral 4 days ago. Rash on left torso half way around body about 3-4" wide just under my pec is fading but still present, 20% scabbed over.

    My main question is my appetite has been really off since starting the anti-viral and having a lot of really foul gas and my pain seems to shift between abdominal (very much like cramps and bloating and I m a male) to the rash area

    Tylenol helps the rash area pain but doesn't seem to effect abdominal discomfort

    Is this a typical occurrence? I didn't like how I felt on meds, sluggish, moody, dropping stuff etc
