Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

From the available information, you probably have spasm of muscles of the affected parts of the body. A 5 days' course of a combination of anti-inflammatory pain-killers, (such as ibuprofen + paracetamol) and muscle relaxant drug, (such as, chlorzoxazone) should be enough to cure the pain.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me and will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
