Thank you for your question.
The best over-the-counter remedy which is available without a prescription is to take something like aceclofenac (which should be available over the counter in Ghana) 100 mg twice daily. This is the generic name, ask the pharmacist to give you the brand. If this is not available you can use naproxen 500 mg three times a day (this again is the generic name, ask the pharmacist to give you the brand name).
Along with this I would recommend taking a muscle relaxant like cyclobenzaprine 10 mg two to three times a day.
It sounds like you have pulled a muscle.
This should heal up in a week or two.
If your symptoms persist or worsen I would recommend that you be seen to be evaluated further.
