Here are the possibilities:

Acute injury

You can fight a viral infection by doing the following:
Drink lots of water
Take paracetamol 4 times a day

For muscle strain and injury, try these:

Take Paracetamol to help reduce the pain

Talk to a neurologist if the pain continues. I hope this helps you. All the best.
