Hello, I'm Dr Palmer. What you make be experiencing is neuropathic pain secondary to your past trauma. Burning or itching or sharp intermittent aches over that area are common descriptions for neuropathic pain. Nerve injury in the past to sensory nerves can cause this.
At this point, surgery would unlikely be an option, but there are many meds that can calm down nerve pain like Lyrica or Gabapentin or Tricyclic class medications. Any strength problems in that arm?
Then its very likely what I described above. You could see a internal medicine primary doctor like your PCP or you could see a neurologist. They could try doing an EMG to see if there is a specific nerve having conduction problems, but certainly in the mean time one of the meds I described above can help you. I hope I was able to help. I certainly do not think this is an urgent problem.
You are very welcome, please make sure to rate me. I hope you are able to find relief quickly.
Please rate me. Thanks
