Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You must have strained a ligament attached to pelvic bone during straining. This is a common occurrence.

Please watch out for any urinary symp***** *****ke painful urination --that will signify infection.

Otherwise nothing to worry about.

Warm heat, over the counter ibuprofen should help with the burning sensation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
