Welcome to HealthcareMagic. The type of pain you mentioned seems to me like one due to some minor injury, probably with some hairline fracture. There might be an overuse of these joints which is leading to this pain. It could even be compression of nerve or even a reffered pain.So rest of the affected limb is very much required and i would suggest an X ray of the same and please visit an orthopedician.Take care.
