    I haven't been on pain meds yet, my other symptoms were worse then the pain, but now they have just about gone and the pain is starting to get unbearable.

    It is joint pain mostly, in hands, elbows, hips, knees and shoulders.

    The side effects seem to be things like risk of internal bleeding :S.

    What pain meds are the best with the least side effects?

    There are no pain meds without side effects. Of course everyone is different. But here are some I have taken
    ultram, works for me and when pain gets bad I use percocet. Also I use zanaflex muscle relaxer and Daypro antiflammatory. I hurt everyday and these take care of my pain. At first they gave me flexeril and Bextra. Bextra worked great but they took it off the market.

    Hope you feel better
