Molly, it appears that you have an over use injury. This scan be a simple sprain, a tendonitis etc. I would suggest you report the incident to your employer to be recorded and reported to COID. See your doctot, who will the n process this as an Injury on Duty. You will need to do alternative duties until your symptoms have abated.
