Brief Answer:
Most probably muscular in nature

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank you for the answers. I have gone through them. Most common cause for such pain is muscular in nature. If i were her treating doctor then i would have advised following things:

- Acetaminophen suspension thrice a day for 2 days
- take hot water in a rubber bottle and place it at the site of pain. It will give soothing effect.
- Avoid lifting heavy weight.

Hopefully she will see improvement in 2-3 days BUT if condition remains same or aggravates then she needs to visit hospital for further management.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing her good health !!
