Urgency to pee, back ache. Negative Uti. Ct scan show no kidney stones but some lyph node swelling. Dr didnt seem concerned. Could it be shingles?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Shingles and bladder

Not likely at all: zoster will create a rash; will not create urgency; lymph node enlargement should be followed - what is reason? is there inflammation nearby?

In brief: Not shingles

Your DR is probably right to elect watchful waiting as the best strategy for awhile.
