No: It does sound like your doctor is correct: The pain sounds like it is of musculoskeletal origin. This type of pain usually increases with certain movements(e.g. bending, twisting)As such, it should gradually subside over the next few days or 1-2 weeks. If it persists or gets worse consult your doctor for reevaluation.
