Brief Answer:
Analgesics.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

To relieve pain you can take Tab. Ibuprofen after food, twice a day for 3 days. From your history I believe you are currently not on any medications.

Other measures you can take is to continue walking 5 to 6 times a day for 20 to 30 minutes as a exercise and elevate your leg during rest. You can wear compression
stockings.

In case your symptoms persists or worsens it is best to meet your treating doctor for a detail examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.

With regards,
