Hello I'm Dr Chip
Any cough or shortness of breath?
Where exactly is the pain located?
Have you ever had anything like this before?
There are a couple of possibilities here besides a pulled muscle--
Possibly a pulmonary embolus from a deep venous thrombosis clot in a leg vein
Or a kidney stone
Since I can't examine you I have to say you need to get this checked out as soon as possible with an exam, chest x-ray, urinalysis and possibly a ct scan of the abdomen
Please let me know if you need any more information
Not an ER situation for now but you should see your doctor tomorrow
No a pulmonary embolus is not a cardiac problem--your regular doctor is fine to check this out
