This could be a hundred different things, and there's no way people on the internet can diagnose or even give an educated guess.

You need the vet. I understand about the expense, believe me, but the only way you're going to get to the bottom of this is to have a vet look at him. Because depending on what it is, how you manage him will be vastly different.

One thing I'd stop doing immediately is any lunging. That's hard on horses' joints and tendons, especially in a small pen, and even moreso if the pen has deep footing.

No riding either. I don't care how sound he appears in the pasture, etc. Stop working him until a vet has seen him.

Good luck.
