In brief: Strained Oblique

If this discomfort is above the crest of your pelvis it could be that you have strained your oblique muscle, which should be self-limited.
However, if this is accompanied by any systemic symptoms (abdominal pain, fever, chills for example) you might have a problem internally and should seek help from a family or emergency physician.
