Ouch! I get that too sometimes. It is sudden and for me it doesn't last long but when it gets going it will happen repeatedly within that day or week. It has really increased since I can't take my NSAID's anymore *whaaaaaaaaa*. I agree with SJ . . . for me it is inflammatory.
Sorry you are having problems.
