Hello from JustAnswer.
Yes, this will usually ease over a couple of days. Signs that there may be more significant injury that would warrant being seen would include pain that precludes being able to bear weight on the leg or significant tenderness if you press along a bone.
If these signs are not present, then it would be reasonable to try to manage this at home with an over the counter pain medicine and the application of ice to the leg.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

If pain doesn't ease in couple of days should I get it checked
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
If the pain is not significantly improved in 2-3 days, then yes, it would be appropriate to be checked. If the pain is getting better but not yet completely gone i 2-3 days, it would be fine to give it some more time.
