Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Seems like a muscle pull or a tear.
This can take around six to eight weeks to recover completely.
Meanwhile you should continue to take anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen 400-800 mg three times daily after meals.
However, I would still prefer that you should be examined just to make sure everything is okay and to confirm the diagnosis.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options.
Kind regards.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
