If you are having the pain on the left side, please see a Doctor to get the right treatment for it. This will help you to prevent a heart attack.
If not, you can try RICE to help you.
Rest the body and the muscles to avoid further injury
Ice the area for 15 mins every hour several times a day
Compress the area by using a crepe bandage
Elevate the area by raising it on top of 2 pillows
Hope this helps you. All the best.
