The description of your pain is not detailed enough to suggest a direct diagnosis.

Was there any precipitating factor? - Like lifting a heavy weight / unusual posture or exercise?

Is this the first time? Or, you have had it before?

Do you have any other problem - now or before?

I presume a 'no' for all these - in view of the short duration and young age.

The pain will improve with NSAID (ibuprofen, diclofenac, celecoxib and so on. Sometimes they can cause stomach irritation in some people - Take them after food. Simple Paracetamol alone and or in combination could also help.

At times, a muscle relaxant - like chlorzoxazone or methocarbamol - is added.

You can get a proper prescription from your General Physician.

Good posture at work and home are important in the long term. Yoga can help.

Go for massage, fomentation and physiotherapy - if severe.

Good luck
