Getting intermittent unilateral goosebumps on hip. What could this be?

Daily I get intermittent unilateral goosebumps to my left hip. It s not painful and I am not cold but it s noticeable. It doesn t radiate down my leg. I have no previous medical history besides being over weight no chronic illnesses, I have no allergies, I take no regular home medications other than birth control and imovane at night for sleep. Any ideas? Could this be nerve related?

Thank you for posting your query.

These symptoms could be related to nerve problem of the skin nerves.

There could be mild mechanical pressure on the skin nerves leading to goose bumps. There is no need to worry, as it does not represent any serious problem of the nerves.

You should get better soon in a few weeks.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
