Multiple choice: Lots of possibilities, some serious, some not. You are asking for an accurate diagnosis based on a list of signs/symptoms. You also need health history review, physical examination, possibly imaging, possibly lab tests. Please see your Physician or Urgent Care rather than just your screen.
