If your unsure of anything. Its best to call your vet. You never know what will happen if you try to treat it your self.

I highly doubt it but thanks. There's no "needle prick" from a stinger or anything.

It happens to my mare every now and then. She could be going into heat, or a fly bit it (you would not be able to see the bite). If you are really that concerned get the vet out :)
