Hi welcome to HCM'
I think your doctor is right , just take few muscle relaxant , physiotherapy and bed rest fo for 2-3 days.
If then pain also remains then you have to do MRI. Shooting pain is mostly do due nerve compressio, which may be due many cause, so MRI will be necessary.
Dont ingore the pain . Thanking you.
