This seems to be related to nerve problem, the cause seems to be trauma. I would recommend you to see a pain physician or a neurosurgeon as you need a thorough examination and a scan to make an exact diagnosis and he can offer a steroid shot as well for long-term relief. Meanwhile, you can apply ibuprofen cream over it.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
