Our expert says:
Tony, stress more often causes slowly progressing problems and not acute ones. The stress might certainly have played a role in this, but I doubt that it is the sole cause. It sounds like inflammation or an infection, but I can’t tell you why it developed. The best would be to hang in there and see what the tests say. Good luck.
PS. It would be interesting to know what it was, so drop me a line if you have the time.
