Hi Hobbs4e,

Whenever there is recent trauma to your body you can expect some swelling to occur-- especially when it involves tearing in the shoulder and bulging discs. You may need some medication for the pain and headache.. as long as your doctor hasn't contraindicated taking Tylenol or Motrin, you can do that for the time being until you can get in touch with your doctor and s/he can prescribe something a little stronger if s/he thinks it is necessary. 

Hope you get well soon,
