Thanks for writing to us.
The pain you are having is likely to be due to an inflammation. Proper medicines like anti inflammatory drugs and hot fomentation is needed for proper treatment. Symptoms are likely to improve in 2-3 weeks.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
