Hi,
Naproxen is an anti inflammatory drug and good pain killer. It is effective for joint pains. Tramadol is also a strong pain killer but can cause sleepiness, dizziness and nausea in some people.
I would suggest you try naproxen first. If you find no relief after 24 hours of medication then try Tramadol.
