In brief: Give it a Rest.

It is best to rest and avoid strenuous activity until it resolves.
You can take NSAIDS to help with the inflammation but the condition usually resolves on its own.

In brief: You're good

Whatever is comfortable.
This might even be a time to explore something new; some good aerobic exercise might actually prove anti-inflammatory and therapeutic.

In brief: Non impact

non impact exercise that keeps you breathing fairly deep but not too rapid and not hunched over should be helpful.
