Hi i do not think bleeding inside the elbow with shingles 2yrs and two backs back .it can only present as post herpetic neuraliga not bleeding and even the staph infection 6months back can cause bleeding in elbow region.first rule out any injury to inside the elbow to rule out it.rule out bleeding disorders by doing .prothrombin time .if they are abnormal consult not forget to rule out infections
