what do people with Crohn's take for pain during flare ups?

I have been on Remicade for about a year now, every 8 weeks I go for treatment. Which has been amazing, except by the 7 week I start not feeling well, I am unable to get treatment during the 7 weeks do the lack of funding. So my question is "What do people with Crohn's take for pain during a flare up?

When I was on Remicade, my joints were hurting like crazy and I used to take Tyelnols (not a lot but once or twice). And if it is just a flare up, I did not take anything, I just waited for my next treatment.
