Musculoskeletal pain: This sounds like a musculoskeletal pain . You need to see your doctor to confirm it and prescribe you the necessary treatment. Pain is always a warning that there’s something wrong somewhere, eg soft tissue damage. It’s not always wise to ignore it especially if it persists for so many days. Otherwise I am sure there will be effective treatment for yours
