    With out know more I would guess that you have pulled a muscle. It would be a good idea to ice the area as much as you can. I realize how hard it will be to ice such a large area especially when you can't reach it. But Ice is your best bet at this point because you're gonna be dealing with some inflammation. Some people will try a hot pad but that can actually aggravate the inflammation. In fact it may feel good at first but it will not help the inflammation in the end. That's my take on it, we'll see what other comments come up
