Brief Answer:
It seems to be a muscle pain.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms are due to muscular pain.

I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated by an Orthopedic surgeon.

You can take a painkiller like Ibuprofen twice daily after meals along with an antacid like Omeprazole 40mg.
If pain persists, you can add a muscle relaxant like Chloroxazone.

Hot fomentation and application of pain relieving gel locally will be helpful.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
