Nikita, it’s difficult to say what the problem is from this side of the screen without being able to examine you. It might be due to inflammation or maybe even an infection. You can try taking anti-inflammatories (Arthrotec®, Brufen®, Celebrex®, etc.) for the weekend, but if it doesn’t clear up you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
