Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir ,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that it looks like its a muscle sprain or a ligament pull that is troubling you .

In my opinion you need to take rest and take an antiinflammatory like naproxen or ibuprofen for 5 days till it settles down if there is no contraindication .

You can also use analgesic gels over the area it will help settle the pain .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
