I have severe pain in the muscle [Trapezious?]on top of my left shoulder. The pain extends up the left side of my neck, making it difficult to turn my head. The pain becomes excruciating when I move a certain way.
Over the counter pain medicine I recommend ibuprofen as it has analgesic as well as anti inflammatory properties. As far as prescription pain medicine, I would recommend a low dose of hydrocodone. It is a narcotic and is addictive but taken for short term wouldn't be a problem.
Hope this helps,
