Most probably muscular spasm

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Your symptoms suggesting muscular spasm. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:

- Naproxen thrice a day for three days
- take hot water in a rubber bottle andplace it at the site of flexion. It will give soothing effect.
- Do visit ER once to get a baseline ECG done.

Hopefully you will see improvement in 1-2 days. If condition remains same then visit hospital for further workup.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
