This type of problem: needs to have hands on examination for diagnosis by a clinician. If you continue to have problems and no amount of rest, ibuprofen 200-400 mg 2-3 times daily, and icing have resolved the issue, see a family practitioner or orthopedic specialist for help. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
