ok, now theres lots of bad advice out there, but this takes the cake.
90% is right, but asprin is NOT an anti inflamatory. it acts as an anticoagulant and pain killer. its anticoagulant properties are the reason why it is given too people with heart conditions to prevent clotting.
take asprin on an acute inflamatory injury, and you will increase the swelling.
bottom line, come see a physical therapist. other than prescribing a stronger NSAID, a physio will be able to do far more for you in terms of diagnostics, treatment and retraining to prevent recurrance. some doctors are competent with musculoskeletal injuries, but a large portion are just drug monkeys.
