Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Movement without pain draws attention away from joint, muscle, local inflammation and so on.
It may be a referred pain – Upper lumbar nerves (L1 to L3) supply that area. It is not always that local pain is felt or prominent.

An examination by a qualified neurologist may be the best approach. Very often a clinical diagnosis may be possible in most circumstances. Sometimes, investigations may be required .

For the time being simple pain relievers with o without skeletal muscle relaxant may help

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
