Since pain meds make me sick to my stomach, I've had to find other ways to handle the pain. Here are some things I use or have used in the past for pain:
Magnesium - helps prevent muscle pain & cramping
Nettles - made my joint pain disappear completely
Homeopathic Arnica - can help with any pain, very helpful if pain is from over-doing it on a "good" day
Homeopathic Causticum - helps with the wandering leg pains, hand pain
Benadryl - helps some with muscle aches, nerve pain, abdominal pain, bladder pain
Heating pad - helps with most of the different pains I've experienced from Lyme, including bladder pain
