In brief: NSAIDs
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the best for such pain.
These include motrin, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxyn, advil, etc. Always consult your md before starting new meds. Nsaids can make one' blood thinner and cause upset stomach.

In brief: Several
If just looking for this simple way out then you can try tylenol (acetaminophen).
If you have no GI or kidney issues & not on blood thinners then Aspirin or non steroidal medication like Naproxen or ibuprophen can help. Just avoiding prolonged positioning or using a small object like a foot stool to alternate placing a foot up will help increase your tolerance to stand as will regular exercise and weight control.
