Get checked: That kind of severe pain without clear injury can suggest something is out of place (dislocated), or something is caught where it shouldn't be, such as a ligament inside the joint being pinched. Both unusual without some injury though. Need more info to make clear diagnosis as fractures, infections, inflammation (bursitis, tendinitis) can also cause pain.
