Hi
Thanks for your query

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It is most likely muscle pull. Icing, elevation, rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen are helpful. Vitamin B and C is helpful in recovery. You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
