Your pain sound very much like a muscular type of pain. Sometimes massage of the area can help relieve the pain. Try stretching the area slowly and gently. Sometimes warming the area up with a heating pad before stretching can help loosen the muscles to get a better stretch to the muscle.
If your pain doesn't get better I would recommend you see your doctor again.

Hi Dr Chan Lowe
I did go to chinese massage after posting the question. I fell better. I will try apply heat pad before strecthing as you suggest.
Thank you for your suggestion.
