In brief: Anti-inflammatories
Fish oil, ginger, turmeric are all stellar anti-inflammatories without the side effects of over-the-counter popular ones.
A recent study showed that in patients with previous heart attack taking anti-inflammatory medication, there is a 40% increased risk of repeat event within the first seven days.

In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen)?
You can start with basic tylenol (acetaminophen) or generic acetominophen.
Ibuprofen could work as well. You can also try topical pain medicines as well.
