    You do realize that none of what you've done is a treatment for pain, right?  You just pierced a place that is attached to a lot of muscles, and it's going to get rubbed by clothing too, especially if you do sports. 

    Taking a pain reliever isn't going to do much if the area keeps getting jostled, nor if you fuss with it too much.  You have to physically take care with it until the healing process really get started.

    Take it out.  Go see a doctor to see if there is a medical condition.  Don't pierce anything else.  You run the risk of infection, poorly placed or prepared, bad location, and pain.  If there is that much pain, something is wrong.   GO SEE A DOCTOR!

    What you've used is not safe for a new piercing, as I told you already. Sea salt is the only thing that is fine as long as it's highly diluted

    Nothing can speed up the healing process or really take the pain away, as it's just soreness from the piercing. You've only had it for a few days, you just have to deal with it.
