Brief Answer:
Nerve compression

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concern. It sounds like a nerve compression pain, possibly due to a slipped disc.
I recommend you do an MRI to determine the cause.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
