I am sorry that the pain is still present, even after using the analgesic gels. Consider taking an X-ray to rule out a hairline crack or fracture. If not, it should be strain on the tendons.

Take oral analgesics like Tylenol which are available over the counter for a few days, twice daily after food.

Adequate rest is also must.

Get well soon.
