Hi. I am prone to tension headaches/neckaches/shoulder aches - you know, it all runs together sometimes. At times, my meds have really worsened it a lot. While ibuprofen and tylenol really helped, I also found non-med solutions that made a big difference. A heating pad for one thing. Right across the shoulders. For hours. And believe it or not, a few sessions with an excellent massage therapist. She honed in on the worst spots (shoulder rotator cuffs, back of neck, back of shoulders) and broke the cycle of misery, and showed me some simple exercises to keep things from getting too bad. Now I don't know if that would be enough for your situation, but I swear I went from total pain to a huge improvement with the massage therapy. Expensive, but for a few sessions, well worth it.
