HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The tenderness may persist for a few days but show a pattern of decreasing intensity. It you notice no change or an increase severity then you may want to consider an evaluation by your doctor.
You may want to consider using the advil
regularly every 8 hrs for 24 to 48 hours to dampen the inflammatory response and for pain control.
therapy is better for acute pain, you can use an ice pack or a frozen bag of peas for example.
I hope this helps
