A few ideas: You could be about to start your period, or you could be pregnant. If you are sexually active, take a pregnancy test to be sure that you're not pregnant. If that's negative or not a possibility, then these symptoms are related to hormones. See doctor if continues or worsens, make sure you're at a healthy weight. Ibuprofren can help with pain. Birth control may help with skin.
