Hello. Thanks for the question. I would get her seen and have a urinalysis run. This is done to determine if there is a urinary tract infection, crystals in the urine or a sterile cystitis. They can all lead to over-grooming and pain. The treatment is usually with an anti-inflammatory med along with an antibiotic if we think there is an infection. Most cats will be back to normal within a day or two. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
