Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
By the description, it seems that you might have strained or pulled your muscle.
Initially
*apply ice compressions to alleviate the pain
*analgesic medications
*muscle relaxant gel application
*rest for the injured part
To diagnose the soft tissue problems, MRI scan is the best tool.
Consult an orthopedic surgeon for further workup.
Hope this helps
