Brief Answer:
Nerve related pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The severe excruciating pain localized to one region is likely to be due to a nerve related cause. If you have tested negative for shingles then a nerve root irritation or compression is likely.
This pain can be relieved with medicines like gabapentin and pregabalin. I would suggest you try these under your treating doctor's guidance. Taking methylcobalamin supplements regularly will also help.
Do consult a neurophysician for proper prescriptions.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
