at times it feels like i am being pinched under my skin on my right thigh and under my rib on my right side at the same time. it last about 3 second and i start to rub the area and then there is a burning sensation for about 3 seconds. there is no certain time this happens it just does but when it happens it cause me to jump and i move as if i am trying to escape the pain. what could this be and should i go see a doctor?
Sounds like this could be nerve related. The pinching, burning and "jumping" is usually caused by a nerve or cluster of nerves being interrupted by something, whether it is being pinched off for a moment, or experiencing different signals from the brain. You should speak to a physician about this and see if there is anything they can do to help these symptoms decrease.
