Detailed Answer:
Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using HealthcareMagic site ,
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns ..

I hope you feel better soon , in my opinion i think it is a kind of muscular sprain that could subside simultaneously with rest .
For my patients i recommend painkillers like advil tabs when needed , B12 vitamin supplements , muscle relaxants and hot genle massaging with topical anti-inflammatory gels is effective for most of cases .
If pain persists i recommend further investigations and MRI scan for proper evaluation and management and follow them up with your physician or neurologist .
