Persistent back pain and abdomen skin sensitive to touch. Had pulled a muscle in back. Related?

46 yr old female,african american, 155lbs. Recently I pulled a muscle in my lower back (right side just above waist ). I think I might have pulled the muscle opening up the window in the middle of the night (woke up feeling the pain). Currently back pain is persistent if imobile for to long, but my recent added concern is the sensitive to touch of my skin on my abdomen and lower back area. Is this from the pulled muscle

Thanks for writing to us.
The pulled muscle can cause a superficial pain too like pain in the skin. The symptoms are likely to subside by doing a hot fomentation in the area of muscle pull. You can also get some oral muscle relaxants prescribed from your physician for an early relief.
