In brief: Start simple

Phtsical therapy plus nsaids plus muscle relaxers are an excellent start.

In brief: Let see if I can

This very common problem and the answer is not very simple, get to see the doctor soon and start the treatment early, this will give the best chance for recovery.

I think physical therapy is going to be your best help: if you live near Hartford CT, I like to make the joke that there are "magical" physical therapists here. I have no $ relationship with them, but Farmington Valley PT is THE BEST!!!, H Rob't Silverstein, MD

Your doctor can prescribe muscle relaxant, anti-inflammatory along with physical therapy to help with the spasm and pain.

In brief: Many and all

Treating just the symptoms are not the key for your pain.
Need to address the source. Physical therapy, chiropractic, massages, and even TMJ treatment gets more to the real triggers. Pain is very complicated and varies from individual to individual. What works for one, may not for another. A combination of therapies may be required. Healing can be very slow.
