User avatar Hi there,
It does sound like a muscle strain that may have resulted from your working out. If the pain intensifies, or develops only during exercise to be relieved by rest (heart pain) or if you develop any new symptoms then please consult your physician at once. Otherwise, a pain killer and/or muscle relaxanted coupled with some rest should do the job.
Best regards,
