In brief: Open sesagouch.
It would be interesting to see if the sudden pain was associated with any other symptoms.
Among the possibilities are redness, swelling or heat. There are a host of possibilities but my money is on either gout or sesamoiditis. To remove all doubt, a thorough history and evaluation are indicated.
