In brief: Try anti-inflamatory

Pain medicine is tricky.
That's why there are pain management specialists. There is controversy over the effectiveness and side effects of Darvon if it is still on the market where you are. Sometimes drugs like motrin, advil, (ibuprofen) alleve, or even Aspirin are more effective than you would think. There are side effects to taking too much of these like stomach and kidney issues. Questions, ask dr.
