recently I've come down with the flu and looking for a pain reliever that is gluten free and free of other things like rice,corn and soy that normally is found in medications like Tylenol or Motrin. Does anyone know of any that I can obtain to make things easier on me while I recover, that info would be greatly appreciated.

Chamomile will help with sore muscles. A hot salt bath is supposed to help with achy joints. Feel better!

This is probably not enough relief, but turmeric tea is supposed to be a good pain reliever. I steep turmeric root and ginger in coconut milk, a sprinkle of black pepper (it activiates the tumeric), perhaps a little honey, and some cinnamon.
Hope you feel better soon. Remember--bone broth, bone broth, bone broth!

It's harder and harder to get clean stuff out there, even plain old generic aspirin is coated with weird crap, at least corn, these days. The low dose ones are colored, why anyone cares what they look like is beyond me. Even the liquid stuff meant for infants and children is filled with weird colors and flavors.
I found this: http://www.amazon.com/Free-Infant-Acetaminophen-Grape-Pack/dp/B00JQK3WNW/ but it show the inactive ingredients, so I'd stay away from it as well.
You could try ginger instead. Slice it thin, pour hot water over it and drink it like a tea. When you get to the bottom, eat the ginger itself. Not as fast as aspirin, but works.
Though I haven't tried it myself, I hear DMSO is a good pain killer, but you have to be very careful with it as it's a carrier for larger molecules through the skin. Might work for joint pain when mixed with aleo vera, but you wouldn't use it for headaches, and certainly not the flu: http://www.dmso.org/articles/information/muir.htm
Looks like we're kinda screwed on this one, at least for conventional plainkillers.
But I did find the original form of aspirin (aka Willow Bark Extract), no idea how effective it is vs tylenol/advil. You probably want the 2nd link, I'd be very very very careful with the bulk powder, you could easily OD on it:
