Yes

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

You should definitely visit a doctor and get X rays done. Had it fallen back correctly in place the problem would have already resolved. Based on the findings of the X ray, your doctor would be able to intervene properly.

Feel free to write back.
