Sounds like a Bristleworm. Got any pics?

If it is bright orange it could be a fire worm. Google bristleworm and fire worm and see which one it looks most like.

If you are gonna try and remove it be careful, they hurt when you handle them, use gloves /tweezers.. they are suprisingly hard to get at sometimes
