Hi and thanks for using the forum.

Sorry for the delayed answer to your post.  I have been trying to do some research about your complaint and coming up fairly empty.  What you have described is very specific, occuring in one spot fairly frequently.  This makes me think that it is a possible nerve issue (such as a pinched nerve).  I think you should see your doctor (if possible and you have the means, a neurologist would be best) to have this evaluated.  Good luck.
