Brief Answer:
That is fine hope the information was helpful for your M.D and she feels better.

Detailed Answer:
Hope you feel better soon,

You may try gentle massaging with topical anti-inflammatory gels and a muscle relaxant will be fine.

Also avoid heavy lifting, bad sitting or sleeping postures and the pain will subside within days else an MRI scan for better evaluation.
