Pain in the shoulder muscles, or pain in the actual joint where the ball and socket are (rotator cuff)?

You CAN combine NSAID's, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen, and you will get both an pain blocker and anti-inflammatory. Then you can do 15min of ice pack, followed by 15min of heat, repeating that a few times a day. Go easy on the NSAIDs because they're hard on the body. CBD creams that are high in CBD, compared to THC, will temporarily deaden pain, and they're not bad for you.

If you think the pain is in the rotator cuff, you can do your own PT using bungee cords or actual thera-bands, and safely strengthen the muscles around that area of the chest and shoulder, so that the ball end of the arm bone is held more centered in the cup of the joint, and doesn't "scrap" into an area of the cup, casing swelling and pain, and damaging the cartlidge.
