Brief Answer: Please provide the requested data..... Detailed Answer: Hi, Before going into final conclusions, I'd like to have more of your medical data: - have you been physically involved more than usually recently? - have you started new meds these days? - have you had similar problems earlier? - have you had any accident recently or earlier? Until I get your data, I suggest to - take OTC oral painkiller - apply warm clothing and OTC analgesic cream locally - do massage the pain area - take OTC multivitamin supplemts containing vit d, calcium, fish oil, etc Looking forward to have the requested data in! Thank you!
