Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to say. Acute joint pain occurs more commonly in reactive/ inflammatory arthritis. However, joint pain or arthralgia may not necessarily be due to arthritis, which is an inflammation of the joint; though it is the most common cause of joint pain. Joint pain could also occur due to neuro-muscular issues or referred pain from other regions. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
