You can start opening and closing valves, but be prepared for them to leak if they are the old gate style valves. The packings wear out on these.
Unless some one has been messing with the valves This wouldn't be the case unless the valves were closed then you tryed to open them the lines are pressurized if the packing nut starts to leak you can tighten then back up clockwise with channel locks
This really sounds like the shower body going.

Who is the manufacturer of your water heater and what is the first 8 digits of the serial number?
