Thanks for writing to us.
The pain you have described is related to the fatigue due to continuous working. You need to do regular hot fomentation and do some stretching exercises under guidance of your physiotherapist. Taking mild pain killers will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
