You have not mentioned since when you are having this pain. It can be a muscle pain. I would suggest you to take Brufen tablet, Diclofenec ointment and Hot water fomentaion. If your pain increases then you should show to orhtopaedic surgeon. Do not do any heavy weight lifting ,gym or running activity.
