In brief: Pain w/o rupture?
At times a contained rupture can allow someone with a lot of pain to put off, temporarily, the big catastrophe.
This is an urgent situation at that point which generally requires immediate attention.

If you have an aneurysm and you have pain you should immediately go to the nearest emergency room. This could be a sign of impending rupture or rupture.

In brief: Possible
There is a condition called a "contained rupture", which means the walls of the aorta have been violated however the leak is contained.
This is certainly painful but is not a full blown rupture. Urgent repair is indicated. A ct angiogram helps to identify this.
