A 46-year-old female asked:
What pathology could mimic a pain that goes from my back to my side to my abdomen on l in a belt type fashion and would it show in general blood work?

Depends: If the pain is limited to one side of the body, you may be getting shingles. If it is a chronic issue and affecting both sides, then an in-person history, physical and blood tests may be needed to resolve the question.
