hello,
for this type of pain we generally prescribe medication like pregabalin,and duloxetine.
it is also advisable to reach the recommended dosage of medication which is 600 mg for pregabalin.
apart from medicines regular exercises should also be started to help reduce pain and spasm in muscles.
I find this answer helpful
