In brief: ANTI-INFLAMMATORIES

You're not really looking for a pain medication, which addresses the pain but not really the inflammatory process.
Instead, the broad class of NSAID's would be more helpful. These are not without side effects, and should be monitored by a physician. Dr. Latva

In brief: Immobilization

pain medication will not help.
Immobilization is the optimal treatment. Take Motrin 800 once daily every 8 hours for 3 days
