Recurring tingling goosebumps on one arm and leg throughout, surrounding are arm. What could be the cause?

I have been getting tingling goosebumps all over my right arm and right leg only. I am not sick and i am not cold i live in bama and it was 98° here and it happened while i was outside. Its been happening all day maybe once or MAYBE twice in one hour. I just don t know what it is and am kind of getting worried. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks for the help.

Thanks for writing in.
I think you're suffering from a pilomotor seizure. these seizures usually come from the temporal lobe in the brain. This is a condition where due to a problem in the brain, the person gets recurrent attacks of goose bumps.
at this stage, you need to see a physician and get a CT scan or a MRI of the brain done. There are several other causes of such symptoms but since you dont have any other symptoms, our first step should be to rule out a problem in the brain.
Hope this helps.

I have these goosebumps for the past 2 days now, only on my left thigh. I have had these in the past also, but not often. I have a history of migraines with aura. I have been in for a brain MRI and it came back normal. I am getting freaked out.
