Our expert says:
I'd be careful about medicine. Not because it doesn't help, because I'm sure it will help a little, but because it doesn't treat the cause the injury. And the danger is that it masks the pain, and allows you to train and then you get worse, not better.
If it is an injury like cartilage (which sounds reasonable) or tendon, then ideally it needs some rest. But most of all, it needs a diagnosis, and that's what you need to find first. If it is a tendon or cartilage, then there's treatment (rest among them) but you'll only know once you know what the injury is. So while it's frustrating, that's important. If you can't get to someone, then perhaps a day or two of rest followed by easier training for a couple of weeks, might do the trick.
