Thanks for posting your query.

1) Do you have any past history of injury at affectes site.

2) Kindly mention in which manner your skin is sensitive to touch.

3) You are most likely suffering from hypersensitivity of that skin patch and such conditions are not associated with any muscular involvement.

4) You should go for Nerve conduction velocity studies to confirm any neuropathic changes.

5) You should also consult with neurophysician.

Put your query if you have.

Take care,

Dr.Mayank Bhargava
