Brief Answer:
Hemorrhage of any nodule suspected

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!

If the pain is sharp and acute it is suggestive probably of an internal hemorrhage of any of the nodules. It usually begins with a strong cough or sneeze and is self-limiting. Paracetamol or Ibuprofen can be used for the pain.

Of course, to confirm the diagnosis, an ultrasound is helpful but is not an emergency.

This is a supposition suggested by your short description.
So, she can take a Paracetamol and if not relieved, please see a physician without any further delay.

Hope the information will help.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Kind regards,
