First, some terms.
A "short" is when something is connected, but shouldn't be. An "open"
is something not connected, but should be.
Since you have a VOM, please try reading from the hot to the ground.
If this gives you 110 volts, then the problem is with your neutral.
In any case, it's a good idea every couple years to take a screw
driver and tighten all the neutrals in your breaker box. I know no one
does, but it's a good idea. I've lived at the same adress for 11
years, and not tightened my neutrals.
