In presence of cardiac disorder it is unwise to take pain killers. Any pulled muscle needs rest to heal because there are micro years of the muscle fibres. Acute Spain needs cold compress instead of hot compress. You can take some muscle relaxants and low dose pain killers but putting the muscle into rest is an important manoeuvre
