Welcome to the forum.
I am happy to address your questions, i feel it more related to either spine or muscle related problem. In any case, heat would help because it helps the muscles relax. You may take some skeletal muscle relaxants with analgesics which will help relieve the spasm and pain.
But still confirmation of disease requires X-ray to be taken.
Treatment is exercise .
So consult orthopedic doctor for guidance.
I hope this is helpful to you.
