No it has come on quite suddenly, don't know if its serious and should visit doc?
I personally think that you do not have anything serious or anything to worry about.
It could most likely be a viral infection causing this to happen. This should most likely settle in a few days time.
However, having said that, if your symptoms do not improve I would recommend that you should visit your doctor.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Rate me for my services when you are done.
