Doctor can recheck: Pain should have a reason. One's doctor can reevaluate to see what the cause might be. Pain is a perception, meaning different people with the same type of cause or issue will perceive it differently, so some people will perceive it as not painful, and some perceive it as more painful than others do. Maybe some imaging studies will be done to see if anything visible is affecting local nerves.
