I agree, if you have to take something that's over the counter, try Ibuprofen or Aleve. You might also want to try putting ice on it, on & off for a few days, then you can try using moist heating pads on the area. And if it doesn't get better, or if you get any pain going down your leg(s), then see a doctor. I do hope it gets better for you quickly!
