what meds are best used for pain?

I am on percocet and muscle relaxers for nerve and muscle pain in my arms (see thread under "can't get diagnosis: arm neuropathy, (etc.)").

I am really afraid of addiction, but am in an agonizing amount of pain. I would like to hear other people's stories about what they experience. I do not like the feeling of percocet, but at least it distracts me from the feeling of pain. My dr. has prescribed medical marajuana, but I really did not like the way it felt. It made my pain go completly away for a couple of hours, but it made reality strange? if that makes any sense to anyone. Are there other nerve and muscle meds that would help?
