There was no immediate wow that hurts I just woke up one day, and noticed it was bigger; significantly bigger. It s not a shooting pain, it s an achey pain.

Hello dear, you might have developed fibrositis.. You need to take rest at least for 48hours. along with that yo have to apply hot water fomentation. you can take some good calcium tablet combined with vitamin-D. If possible visit to your Physio to get examined and some pain relieving modalities like phonophoresis etc.. Wish you a good health soon
