In brief: Chronic pain remedy
Chronic pain is best treated using pain management therapies from a pain specialist as well as engaging in alternative therapies such as yoga or tai chi to help with balance, stretching, feldenkrais, physical therapy, high doses of fish oil, arnica, and eating an anti inflammatory diet.
Regular acupuncture and massage can help as well.

In brief: Maybe
After getting a thorough evaluation from a physician who is competent in this area, you may find that non prescription anti inflammatories, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or Naproxen are sufficient to adequately treat your pain.
Keep in mind you will achieve the best care in collaboration with your physician, who may also recommend other prescription medications.

In brief: Yes/No
There are tons of chronic pain medicines and remedys.
If you have chronic pain which is interfering with your quality of living and ability to function it is no a good idea to grab something off the shelf. Chronic pain is so much more complicated that an otc drug. You should not try to treat this yourself, but consult a pain management professional. Preferrable a member of aapm or abipp.
