See your doctor : DIY diagnosis and treatment have serious shortcomings because the whole basis is subjective. We have investigational tools to minimize the guesswork in arriving at a diagnosis. It makes our lives a lot easier when we utilize them. Ask your doctor to refer you for Xrays I& he hasn’t to establish if there is or there isn’t a fracture and treat it accordingly
