Pain on left side torso, tight, shooting back pain. Is it latissimus dorsi pull. Can this make sense?

Hello, I am a 45 year old man still active and in shape. I played flag football last night as QB (normal position) and in a throwing motion felts a pull on my left side (Right handed). I have pain on the left side torso in the middle and it feels tight and when i sneeze its a shooting pain and travels to the middle of the back. I believe it is a latissimus dorsi pull... can this make sense?

Diabetologist 's  Response

This action of yours may have result in muscle spasm or tear of the shoulder and back muscles.

The nature of pain is mostly due to muscle trauma.
History alone can not specify any particular muscle.
It needs detailed examination and relevant investigation.

You may need
1. Rest
2. Physiotherapy.
3. X ray/MRI of the area.
4. Analgesic for pain.
5. Orthopedic consultation.
