It very important that you see a provider to r/o serious conditions such as blood clots. Sudden pain in this area could mean so many things . So do not self medicate with further eval to investigate the cause.

Any new sudden onset pain without trauma could signify a vascular problem either arterial insufficiency or deep venous thrombus. There are some risk factors. Other issues could be radicular pain from a pinched never. Finally musculoskeletal etiology such as flare up of arthritis including gout should be considered.
Without more information it is hard to define the specific concerns but a trip to your Family Physician should solve the issue. The problem can be vascular, tissue, bone or electrolyte. The Orthopedic Surgeon will only address one of those potential causes. Your Family Physician can use your history, labs and exam to best define the cause and help you then decide on a course of treatment.
Go to your primary care physician, ER or urgent care for a diagnosis and treatment.
