Hi,
Thanks for your query.

After reading your symptoms, I feel that you may have developed a small muscle injury. You need to keep doing cold fomentation, as it will reduce the swelling. You should also apply a local pain killer gel/spray for symptomatic relief.
A dose of mild painkillers with anti-inflammatory property can be taken if required.
Muscle injuries usually take 3-4 weeks to heal completely.
If the pain and swelling continue even after the prescribed time then you must visit your physician for a checkup.

Hope you feel better soon.
Regards
