Brief Answer:
inflammation or a muscle strain

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain that you have could be due to musculoskeletal inflammation or a muscle strain - This can be diagnosed if the pain increases on specific movements or on direct pressure on the affected area. Such pain can respond to medications like Ibuprofen 400 mg taken three times a day. This generally resolves within a week. ‎
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
