Hello. Thank you for your message.

It sounds like you might have a strained or pulled a muscle, though we cannot know with any certainty. Try icing it. Non-Perscription pain medications (like Ibuprofen or Aleve) can help with both pain and inflammation. See your doctor if you are unsure or if it does not get better or worsens.
