Shingles, possibly: Could be shingles, which often begins with pain in a linear distribution on one side, even before the blistery rash develops. Could also be a pinched sensory nerve, and there are other causes. If it is shingles, the sooner you start on treatment (valtrex, famvir, (famciclovir) etc.) the sooner you will have relief, so see your doctor asap.
