    Hi @izzygirl welcome, its hard to pin point the best pain killer as different types of pain relief  work different for different people, its best to speak to your dr to try find the one that suits you best, you can buy paracetamol over the counter.

    Hi there

    You can buy non prescription  pai  killers from chemist  supermarkets and shops

    If you haven't had any before I would go to chemist so you can get advice on best ones for the pain you have 

    Here to help with my experience in hunan resources and employment rights

    Scope community team

    Hello @izzygirl

    Welcome to the community. 

    We aren't able to give medical advice on this community, so I would advice that you speak with your GP or chemist to discuss what pain killer would be best for you.Roddy123 said:

    Welcome to the community! I'm glad that particular one works for you, but again we are unable to give medical advice here and just because one kind of pain killer might work for one person, that doesn't necessarily mean it will work for another.
