Had a sudden sharp pain inside my vagina when I was running

Customer Question

Had a sudden sharp pain inside my vagina when I was running today that latest about 10-20 seconds, then stopped. When I got home and showered found 4 embedded ticks on my hips, buttocks and inner thigh. I pulled them off with tweezers, but now am freaked out thinking the sharp pain in my vagina 30 minutes earlier was a tick embedding there. What is the probabability of this? Should I see my GYN tomorrow?

I was hiking in the woods 3 days earlier, that's most likely when I picked them up.

Excellent health. Other conditions which are currently well-controlled are hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and asthma

I would say it is very unlikely but possible

I would absolutely get checked!
