Is abdominal pain related to neuralgia?

Hi, I have postherpetic neuralgia and I have nerve pain off and on where my shingles rash was. But I also have various muscle aches and now I have lower abdominal pain which just started. I take Gabapentin and a lot of Ibuprofen. My question is about the abdominal pain. Do you think it could be related to the neuralgia?

It is possible that abdominal pain to be caused by herpetic neuralgia.

This is true if the pain follows the trajectory of the nerves and is felt on the surface.

On the other hand, dull ill-located pain may be of intraabdominal organs origin.

This should be evaluated by your Doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
