At this time because of absence of any other symptoms, I would attribute this symptom to an irritable superficial nerve which I think will resolve on its own. If it persists or other areas of the body are involved, consult a neurologist for evaluation and advice.

Agree with prior answer. May be positional or due to pressure over area. Without other symptoms, okay to monitor. Otherwise, evaluation is warranted.
