Dear, Sending You and healing energy!
Dear I check your city you live in is warm not cold.If you were living in very cold and had this problem then I would have think about some disease which affect joint in cold session. Since you said you had short history of joint pain it is be raise in level of c reactive protein (CRP) that can cause sudden pain and swelling which is the sign of acute inflammation of joint.
Dear I would recommend you to do Rheumatoid arthritis("RA)which is very common problem causing multiple joint pain. I would meanwhile recommend you to do RICE -Rest elevation and ice compression on that affected area.
I would like to prescribe you the muscle relaxant drug which helps you in two way one help reduces inner swelling and pain .
1)Tab chlorzoxazone 500 mg PO three daily for three days, after food.
I am Praying for yours speed recovery Thank you
