In brief: Combination medicine

I agree with dr rosenfeld but would add that the combination of hydrocodone with an anti-inflammatory (such as motrin) will work better.

In brief: Maybe

It will work, but like all opioids it does nothing for the underlying problem. Rest, ice and anti-inflamatory medications are cetianly first line treatments.
If the pain persists or if there is extensive swelling see your doctor.
