So sorry to hear about your problem, and yes, those activities can definitely cause you to have pain, especially with movement. Thank is an indication of a muscular problem, especially if you don't have any other symptoms. I would recommend taking Tylenol over the counter (if you do not have any liver problems) using heat and gentle stretching and it should resolve in a few days.

Things to look out for are fever, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stool or worsening pain.

Please let me know if I can further assist you and if you are satisfied with my answer, please give a 5 star rating (we do not get reimbursed without a positive rating).
