Did you have chickenpox before? if you did, then it's possible to have have shingles since the virus that causes shingles is the same as the chickenpix virus. When you have chickenpox the virus isn't wiped from your system,  but can lay dormant, eventually casusing shingles. 


You should let your doctor know about the lack of spots and rashes though. Hopefully they an help you out.
