It is most likely muscular pains

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
what can cause this
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
because its very sudden
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

You can strain or pull your intercostal muscles in many different ways. These muscles are usually hurt during some twisting motion.

Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

I would recommend pain killers and some rest:

Paracetamol 500mg tablets can be taken as 2 tablets every 6 hourly (maximum 8 tablets in 24 hours safely)

Ibuprofen 200mg tablets can be taken as 2 tablets three times a day (maximum 6 tablets in 24 hours safely).

Customer: replied 15 days ago.

Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

Yes panadol has paracetamol inside

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
