I have gone through your query carefully and with such brief duration of pain osteoarthritis seems to be the cause.
Having siaid that I would like to know about-
1.Do you have redness,along with warm and tender to touch?
2.Blood test for serum uric acid?
Meanwhile you may take rest,Ice fomentation and pain killer like Ibuprofen.
Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Doctor thanks for your reply. It is not painful on touch nor is it appears to be red.
Based on this what could it be. I have not done a CBC or uric acid test for a while
