Hello

I am Doctor Thomas, double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will start by asking you a question or by giving you an answer based on your information provided so far. I will be here to follow up with any further questions or concerns you might have.

This is called a paresthesia.
In this case it can be from irritation of the superficial nerve over that area.
You also want to make sure it is not from lower spine disc problems.

Systemic illnesses can cause this, but not usually just in one spot.
Shingles can do it, but you would get a rash.

See your doctor to narrow the diagnosis down.
Use reply to let me know if you have further questions [click reply to expert].
Please do not forget a positive rating [hopefully you will click an excellent; or come back to ask me more as needed].
