Hello,

The pain that you are feeling most probably is a muscle pain due to suddenly increased physical activity. I would suggest you to increase the physical activity gradually because you have been without physical activity for quite a long period of time. Don't need any medications just remember to do stretching after each workout.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
