Until you have someone look at her, keep her in a pen or corral to limit her movement. Assuming this a soft tissue problem (muscle/tendon) it needs to be rested and reinjuries are common. A horse in a pasture will just move too much..it's their nature.

I hope you get a Vet .
if she has only had pasture and no hay , leave her out as you do not want her to colic.Colic can be very serious and can kill a horse.
You never abruptly change feed.
She could have anything from a tendon problem, to arthritis .
As you are new to horses, have fun and there is always More to learn. ;) and don't get discouraged .
