Musculoskeletal: Sorry to hear that you have been having pain. Because it hurts with sudden movement, likely what your are describing will get better on its own eventually. Rest from physical activity that strains that area will help. Possibly it is related skeletal/cartilage/muscle pain, given that it is related to movement. May take a few weeks to fully heal. Hope this helps! Feel better soon
