Make a rod for your own back

Does anyone know what this phrase means and/or from where it originated? Someone asked me and I don't know so now I wanna know!

The phrase, I discovered is usually one of warning meaning "don't make things harder for yourself" but no origen yet. Anyone?
Still no origin, but I'd opine that the rod in question is an instrument of corporal punishment.
