? muscle pull: as it is related to positioning, will heal on its own, meanwhile topical/systemic NSAIDS would help, unless contraindicated, if no improvement see your doctor, good luck

Sharp pain: Most likely muscle spasm (muscle pull). It will hurt to use the muscle as well as to stretch it. Apply gentle heat (careful not to burn the skin!) twice a day and continue to use the muscle with gentle slow stretching. SHould be better in a couple of days.
