In brief: Pressure on the nerv

That begs the question .
.. Where is the pressure? It could be local, positional like you are sleeping on your arm or in the spinal cord. >90% it is between where the pain is and the spinal muscles ... Not dangerous but will drive you crazy. See your doc and see a massage person who may find a tight muscle that needs to be released and you are cured. My tools of choice are acupuncture needles.
