Left/Mid Upper Abdominal Pain

I injured my left/mid upper abdominal muscle, just below the ribs, while throwing ball in an awkward angle after picking it up on the run and turning off balance and throwing. Felt a sharp pain immediately and was okay for a moment. But after an hour, the pain returned and it hurts whenever I try to move the muscle. Lying down and getting up are painful. Whats the nature of injury ?? What should be done? How serious It is? Plz Help....
