Exercise: In general no matter what type of muscle or joint pain you have exercise is a major part of your therapy. Medications have to be more specific to the diagnosis so one can not give a blanket recommendation.

Pain: Stretching, heat from a shower or heating pad (don't get burned), massage, & acupuncture can help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic.
