In brief: Yes but be careful

Prescription painkillers will dull the pain, but do not use for extended periods as easy to become addicted.
Ask dr about gabapentin (non-narcotic which calms nerve), in extreme cases, a nerve block can be done. Chiropractic care has shown good results in some cases. You may contact me at www.drkusher.com.
