Injured Glute...Ideas?

Hello. I just recently injured my right glute and I’m not sure what is wrong. I was doing SLDLs with a much fuller range of motion than I was used to. Now whenever I lean forward with my right leg elevated and with the knee slightly bent I get severe pains in the middle of the glute right where the bone is. I also get sharp pains if I try to move my right foot directly behind my left one…that cross over action hurts. Moving it outward does not hurt though.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be and how long it may take to heal? What can I do for it. I’m really upset about not being able to do leg work…
