In brief: See your doctor NOW

You need immediate evaluation by internal medicine.
Go today don't wait. Outside of maybe low dose aspirin, there is no evidence that ANY pain medication is safe for long-term use (weeks/months). Acetaminophen is a good drug for short-term (a few days, maybe a week or so) at doses up to 3g daily. BUT it is quite LIVER toxic particularly if other liver TOXIC agents are around (alcohol, meds, etc)
