Brief Answer:
Take painkillers.

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query.

If your symptoms occur first time then you should not worry about all that, it may be a simple muscle pull or fatigue during previous days heavy work or sometimes we sleep with arm underneath our head may also cause all this.

You should take tablet ibuprofen or naproxen, and apply hot packs for 30 mins in morning and evening.

If pain does not stop then take muscle relaxant along with painkillers by prescription of your doctor.

Avoid doing heavy work for next 4-5 days.

I hope it helps.
