How to treat before seeking medical advice:
Over the counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), acetaminophen (Tylenol), or naproxen (Aleve). If needed, apply ice and/or heat. Bed rest isn’t recommended. Continue activities that you can tolerate, but if the pain becomes too much make an appointment with a doctor.
