In brief: Agree with Dr. Raff

Additionally - address stress in your life.
To address stress: Talk about feelings & address problems. Don't avoid them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol (or moderate). Try Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, meditation, Yoga, exercise program, deep breathing >

In brief: Relieve the stress

To alleviate pain you could take any of several otc meds including aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, etc.
Valium is an effective muscle relaxant which will also diminish anxiety which stress produces. Massage may also be helpful.
