Hi there

I think that in general, any pain that occurs when it shouldn't is worth looking into, and I do think that a doctor's opinion would be well advised. I can't say for sure that it's nothing serious, and I can't say that it is. It's certainly not common, and so for that reason I would suggest seeing a doctor.

I am not an expert, but had the same symptoms last year November. A week later I was admitted to hospital for the removal of Gallstones.

Take care
