Brief Answer:
Neurological involvement and muscle spasm likely. Needs evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. However, the details are not enough to arrive at any conclusions. You need to get a proper neurological examination and need to visit a doctor for the same. However, based on the mere details available it seems that muscle spasm is involved. In such a case hot compress would provide relief. Proper posturing is important. Physical therapy should provide relief and you should visit a physical therapist for the same.

I would insist you not to ignore it.
