What's your most effective pain med?

I'm still waiting on a dx while my neuro is on vacation. Meanwhile I still have dizzy/forehead and eyebrow pins&needles every morning and I can't function for about 3 hours. I need a job and I need to function, so I'm shopping for a med that will let me drive to work and function. Post your med and how it helps you: every time I turn around it seems there's another drug and I can't keep up with it!

Advil LiquiGels. I should be the national poster child for Advil. It works for me within 20 minutes and helps relieve the pins & needles and inflammation that causes dizziness. Advil plus Antivert are awesome (for me!) for dizziness associated with inflammation in the forehead area.

I have found Meclazine (Alavert) very effective for mylief from dizziness....
As far as pain, herbal therapy and acupuncture have rid me of ALL chronic pain that I've had for years...
