Brief Answer: Seems to be muscle strain. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for writing to us The fact that your pain is occuring with movements indicates a muscle strain. Any strained muscle when stretched gives severe pain. To get relief from the pain and for quick healing: 1. Do hot fomatation at the site. 2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day. 3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen(Motrin) to reduce pain and inflammation. 4. Give adequate rest to the involved muscle group and avoid any movement that causes pain. Give proper time for the injury to heal. Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern. Take care. Warm regards.
