    If this has been going on for over a week you should probably see a doctor. It could be something as simple as a muscle strain or a muscle in spasm. Muscle strains may sound innocuous  but they can be very painful. If it's a muscle strain then ice and/or heat and over the counter anti-inflammatories may help. Only a doctor can diagnose you, however. If the pain is not getting better over time be sure to see a doctor.
