Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Is there any swelling as well?
Thanks for the details
It seems like a sprained soft tissue like a ligament
You need to apply heat pads and an anti-inflammatory like Voltaren gel
Avoid excessive weight bearing
Gentle physiotherapy may be helpful
It can take a couple of weeks to settle
Please do let me know if you have any other question
