Brief Answer: Possible Herpes Zoster infection... Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. If you have only a fluttering feeling in lower back right side, below the rib cage with no skin affection; then, it might be related to a Herpes Zoster infection. Especially, if you are also feeling tired, and having chills recently. Unless, you might be having back pain or other problems. If the fluttering would be associated with pain or becoming worse, should consult your physician for further evaluation! For the time being, should drink more water, rest more and take otc pain killers. Hope it helped! Dr.Bardha Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
