Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Get evaluated, run some metabolics to rule out any metabolic cause, take some pain killers till work up and consult with a doctor.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
