Our expert says:
It sounds more like a nerve pain to me - watch out for blisters in the area as herpes zoster (shingles) can start like this - if you do get blisters please get antiviral medication within 24 hours if possible.
It may also be a pinched skin nerve between the muscles if you picked up something heavy. Try Voltaren jel on the area if the skin is not broken.
