What does tingling sensation in the lower back indicate?

I had my shingle shop last year. I am 62 years old female. I have been having tingling sensation on my lower right back. Occasionally. no rash. my back is sore but painted on Monday and that could be from leaning over. Could this be a very light case of shingles? I am to go visit my daughter this weekend who is pregnant and do not want to go if it is something she could contract? Thank you Edith

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

No. It's not shingles. It is less likely to be any infectious problem. You can definitely go and see her.

I hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further questions.
