NSAIDs are the drugs which are used to relieve inflammation and pain anywhere in the body and the common OTC NSAIDs are advil, motrin, aleve and i would recommend you to add a muscle relaxant like flexeril to relieve any spasm of the spinal muscles as well. Capsaicin cream and warm compresses over the area would be helpful.

The next level of tablets which you can take are opiods like morphine, hydrocodone, gabapentine like lyrica are available with prescription only. I would recommend you to see a pain physician as he can give you prescription of strong pain killers as well as offer you a steroid shot or nerve block to reduce inflammation and pain.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
