Hello.. Well sir its quite possible that you have a ligament injury there...if you don't take adequate treatment it will lead to chronic pain..I suggest you to meet orthopaedician first and get examined... You will have to take chital forte tablets to reduce inflammation...you will also have to use crape bandage... Give hot fomentations for pain..thank you
