Severe Burning after slight bump

For the last few days I've had a spot on my hip that if it gets bumped, even just slightly, the skin feels like it's on fire. It's about a 2" area, but there is no rash or redness. It seems to be some sort of overactive nerve or something? It's fine unless bumped, even if I start to put my hand on my hip when standing it will immediately almost bring me to my knees it's so painful, and lasts about 30-45 seconds then it's fine unless bumped again. My hip and thigh bones have always been sensitive, it feels like a bruise if someone pokes my hip or thigh where the bone is closer to the surface, but not this severe burning.

Hi ksanita.

Look into meralgia paraesthetica, to find out if it matches what you're currently experiencing.
It is a neurological disorder involving a lateral femoral nerve entrapment
(compression).

Hope this helps, however, my comments are not intended as a replacement for medical advice.

Cheers.
