Me, it’s difficult to say without examining you first. The most common cause is just muscle spasm and taking anti-inflammatory drugs for 3-5 days should clear it up. If it doesn’t clear up or it becomes worse, the best would b e to see your doctor as it might be something more serious like kidney problems. Good luck.
