sensitive skin on left side of back

I had a herniated disc L5 5 years ago. Have been ok now for 3 years with the odd bout of pain. At the minute I am experiencing sensitive skin and burning feeling on the left side middle of back close to spine dont feel any pain when moving about. It keeps me awake at night and is so uncomfortable during the day

I take it this is in the midback, somewhere between the shoulder blades?

It's unrelated to your previous hernia.

Has this just recently started? Shingles is a possibility, small vesicles will appear in line towards the front of the chest.

To be honest this is fairly unusual, and I'm reluctant to express an opinion. I think further tests are needed. I'd start with your medical doctor, failing which if s/he can find nothing, see a local chiro.
