Right. You need to take cocodamol or Diclofenac regularly twice or twice a day for at least a week..it should settle with that.

And need to get some good sleep too

Are these prescribed or are they store purchase-able?
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 19 days ago.

The first one is you can get from boots..second one needs a prescription

Ok. Is that all to try for now? If that does not work should I try something else
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 19 days ago.

Yes. It should work..can extend it upto 2 weeks..but you need to take it regularly as I said to break the cycle of pain
