Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It needs physical examination to ascertain the cause. To help you better I would like to know-
1. Is there any trauma?
2. Do you play any sport or any other physical activity?
Meanwhile, Inspite of heat use ice, compression and avoidance of activities that exacerbate pain.
I afraid if the pain persist you may have to visit the ER.MRI am best investigation for sprain/tear of ligament.
Take care and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
