A doctor has provided 1 answer

Patients : Patients who have this symptom could have muscular irritation; nerve root irritation; or even a skin condition that is coming on such as shingles. Patients could try advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) to see if it helps. If the condition worsened, had other symptoms, or any rash, then it would be reasonable for the patient to consult their physician.
