No nausea, giddiness or visual issues. I have taken Tylenol which makes the pain go away, but it will return in a few hours.

Brief Answer:
Prefer Ibuprofen over Tylenol

Detailed Answer:
Tylenol is not good anti inflammatory its mild analgesic more anti pyretic (fever).
I still suggest to try Ibuprofen 400mg thrice a day for two days.
