An evaluation and imaging is a good starting point. An alternative is an urgent care center. A myopathy, spinal condition, and MS should be considered.

In addition to previous suggestions. I would suggest keeping a diary of foods or snacks eaten. Present this to your family physician. concern over a snack such as licorice can cause similar problems. An evaluation of blood clotting tests would be considered.
