Thank you guys so much for the replies. I called an on call nurse and she didn't seem to be too concerned since I don't have any other symptoms. She told me to give it a week or two and if it's not better go to the doctor. If it were a muscle wouldn't I be able to tell with a pulled muscle I can do any activity and it not bother me. The only time it hurts is when touched or leaned up against a chair. Also the way to describe the pain is like a bad bruise. But it's not discolored, just swollen. Weird thing is I haven't done anything to it! But who knows it could be something very minor I was just making sure it wasn't anything to be too concerned about guess I'll wait my week or 2 and if it's not better go see my doctor. I want to thank you both for replying to my message it's deff. Appreciated
