My roommate had full body aches yesterday and her stomache hurts, she has pain on her right side and she gets shooting pain down her right leg.

To ER: Do not know the relationship between the onset of body and stomach aches, but the pain you are describing strongly suggest irritation of a nerve root exiting from the lumbar spine. This can be caused by many things, most commonly a bulging intraspinous disc. She needs to go to student health service or to an ER right away, and needs to thank you for your concern.

Could I have shingles? Headache, swollen lymph nodes in neck and shooting pain down right side

Possibly..: Usually, shingles has a reddish rash sometimes with vesicles (fluid filled clear bumps). Shingles can occur on the head/neck region. The pain typically involves an area corresponding to an affected nerve. I would recommend seeing a physician for an evaluation.

Pinched nerve: The most likely thing is a pinched nerve in your neck that causes the pain to radiate down the right arm. Rest, heat and tylenol (acetaminophen) may help. Otherwise it is always a good idea to see a doctor to be certain.

Cervical spine pain: The differential diagnosis would include cervical facet syndrome (arthritis), cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve), or myofascial pain (muscle spasm). An evaluation with a physiatrist, pain physician, or orthopedist is suggested with detailed physical exam of cervical spine and right shoulder joint, followed by appropriate diagnostic imaging if indicated (i.e. MRI cervical spine and/or shoulder)

Side effects from spinal tap? I can't move around much due to shooting pain from neck down...It's been 3 days; what should I do?

You need to be seen: While it is possible to have side effects of a spinal tap last, the time since your examination is long enough to cause some concern. Call your doctor and discuss this problem. Measure your temperature prior to the contact.
