Our expert says:
Dis your doctors put you on any treatment? If they did you should not take any additional painkillers with that without consulting your pharmacist/doc first.
OTC combination painkillers may prove to be effective: Products combining codeine and aspirin/paracetamol e.g Codis. Should the pain be related to a "pinched" nerve due to muscle spasm it may be worth trying a product that contains a muscle relaxant, eg. Norflex Co.
