Hello, my name is Dr Uzair and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

It sounds like some inflammation of the nerves or muscular spasm. I would suggest taking Ibuprofen 400mg thrice a day for 3 days, avoid prolonged sitting, massage the areas with warm olive oil. If it does not improve then see a doctor.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating today.
