Im 44, and my doc diagnosed me with shingles (pain was so acute on the right side and thought to be kidneys at first). Pain is still beyond believe now (on treatment) but the area is very stiff and sensitive in the same time, can i massage it to feel better?

You can get topical numbing gel and maybe gentle massage might help.

thank you, I will try that!
