The ice pack treatment works a treat on Rheumatoid arthritis pain. But if I am cold (as one may be after chemo and in mid winter) ice may not be useful.

I think mild to moderate pain killers, absolutely zero caffeine (this includes chocolate) and as much sleep as your body and pain will permit may be best.

Luckily for me, when I am in pain, I want to sleep, naturally. Sleepiness seems to come along with the pain. Guess it is my body's own pain defense. Unluckily for me, I fight it and keep soldiering on.
