In brief: Variable

There is no single medication which will provide significant relief for all of these disorders; you should see your pcp for this complex dilemma.
A good starting point for therapy is non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, like aleve. Add to that a general neuropathy rx like lyrica (pregabalin). Each case and response to therapy is different -- see your doctor.

In brief: Complicated question

Your situation is very complex and it may not be able to be addressed by a single medication.
However, a "serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor" like venlafaxine or duloxetine may be a good first step. Other complementary treatments like physical therapy, relaxation exercises and a dental consultation can also help.
