Brief Answer: It seems to be muscular pain. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, it seems that you are suffering from muscular pain as a result of heavy physical activity done by you. Give rest to your self. You can take painkiller like Ibuprofen twice daily after meals along with a muscle relaxant like Chloroxazone. An antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals can be added to prevent gastritis from pain killer. Hot fomentation and application of pain relieving gel will have added benefits. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
