In brief: Yes unless....

You should tell your doctor about all episodes and then let him or her decide whether it requires you coming in.

In brief: Not necessarily

That depends on the reason for the pain.
If the doctor finds that your pain is not serious, he should explain to you that it is not related to a serious cause and that you may not have to report each episode of pain. That said, if you get a different type of pain it would need reevaluation. For instance, a young woman with musculoskeletal pain, such as from costochondritis. Not serious.
