    is it possible to have shingles and not blisters or leasons.i have a small rash on my abdoman but
    this has been there for more years than i care to remember, but not all my life that i do know.

    i have a point on my lower back , to the left thats very sensitive at times, but not all the
    time.pain in my left leg, all the time, to the left of the knee cap and below is worse , numbness up
    and down the left leg, pulses of pain occasionally

    if i walk for any length of time, my left foot is totally numb.

    i cannot sleep the pain is so great , i wake after just 4 hrs, and i have to get out of bed.

    would a blood test tell if i have shingles?
