    Re: I think I have strained my muscle, it is very pain.

    "Straining a muscle" and "pulling a muscle" mean the same to me. Not 'my' - we don't know which muscle you're talking about.
    But you have to say, "It is very painful."
    I don't know what your last line means.

    In BrE, if you stretch your legs, you go for a walk.
