Thanks for writing to us.

I have read your query in detail. The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of pulled muscles and it may take about 2-3 weeks for complete healing. Do not worry about that.
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fermentation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not lift weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for the injury to heal.

Wishing you good health...
