Hello dear,
The symptoms can be attributed to musculo-skeletal injury or nerve entrapment.
Symptomatic relief can be obtained by heat therapy, application of analgesic & muscle relaxant gel, intake of analgesics like Diclofenac + Serratiopeptidase along with Pantoprazole preparations and nervigenic agents like Vit B12, Vit B6.
Take care.

Hello dear,

Thanks for your follow up query.

You can do icing as well.
Application of ice will help in pain relief and relaxation of soft tissue.

However, if pain still persists, kindly consult an Orthopedician & get a proper clinical examination done.

Wishing you a good health.
