Pulled muscle maybe: Pain that is worse with stretching means it could be just a muscle pain. If it is better not stretching or seems worse with certain movements and positions, then it is most likely a muscle strain. If it has continued to worsen or hurts to pushing in and if you are worried, then see your physician.
