Please be more exact: WHERE IN YOUR SIDE IS WHAT? AND HOW DID YOU "PULL A MUSCLE" EXACTLY WHERE AND HOW BIG IS THE SWELLING? HOT? RED? TENDER? HARD? SOFT? DIFFUSE? AT LEAST IT DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE ANY RELATION TO YOUR HEART BUT W/O MORE INFO, IT COULD BE MANY DIFFERENT THINGS BUT STATISTICALLY NONE ARE SERIOUS.
