Have you tried the over the counter pain meds? They don't do much for me most of the time but some times they help. Is your medical doctor your primary care physician? I would contact your PCP and ask if there is anything that you can take. In the mean time I would suggest a hot bath to relax and sooth the joints and make you feel more relaxed. It helps me sometimes although I prefer the hot shower.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
