Brief Answer: Yes,it may be due to muscle spasm. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to us Yes,it may be due to musculoskeletal causes as visceral cause is already excluded in your case.Blood test and UGS is alright. Soreness may be due to muscle spasm. You should take analgesics with muscle relaxants like tablet Tizanidine for 5 days. You can also take proton pump inhibitors like tablet pantoprazole 40 mg once daily before food for one week because analgesics causes gastric irritation. It generally take 4- 5 days to heal. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
