Brief Answer:
Muscular Pain

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
It seems you are suffering from Acute Muscular Pain and the bruises are due to injury. For muscular pain you should do hot fomentation over the involved area 3-4 times a day. You should apply Diclofenac Gel locally over the involved area. To take anti inflammatory and analgesic pain killer like Ibuprofen , Etoricoxib if the pain is very severe.
You can take Hydrocodone or Vicoprofen for the pain if you have them available at home.
Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it.
I hope it helps. If you have any further query, please ask me.
