Brief Answer:
Seems musculoskeletal pain,take painkiller first....

Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear,

I have just received your query and read your concern with diligence.

Now, I advise you to take painkiller like ibuprofen or paracetamol to reduce the pain.

If still having the same pain within the hour after taking the painkiller, then should go to ER for further evaluation and more specific treatment.

Wish fast recovery.
