Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Pain occuring typically during certain positions of body indicates that it is of muscular origin.

Try the following measures -
* avoid lying on the affected side so as to relieve pressure on the inflammed area
* Ice packing to supress the acute pain
* Local application of muscle relaxant gel
* moist heat fomentation for relax the taut muscles

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
