Postby animeemo3 » Mon Jun 17, 2013 5:51 pm

finally! a breakthrough! went to see my gp today, after telling him to refer me to have an ultrasound on my feet to find out what these lumps are (dont know why an ultrasound, but oh well), i told him i had been taking paramol for a few days. and the long lecture arrived. very addictive, not as good, yadda yadda :nono: BUT he suggested i try a new med, and the one he suggested was tramadol 100mg
is this good? been trying to find out on the internet what the strength is like compared to my usual cocodamol/codeine mix, but i cant really find much on it. anybody else on this mg, and whats it like?
he only gave me 10 days worth though, obviously doesnt trust me or something :evil: but i shall persevere, not come this far for nothing, i will have at least one comfortable day gaddammit!

Tramadol is a med that quite a few of us are on as it can be an effective pain reliever. Not sure where you were looking, but I've just asked Dr Googley about it and according to his Mega Encyclopaedia of Pills and Potions, there is quite a lot of info about it online. Try these linkys for more details

I am on this and yes it can be addictive and effective.

I take the slow release 200mg twice a day along with gabapentin and naproxen, this does the job for me, although i will be asking about an increase in tramadol as i am just about to start a new job.

Good luck

I take tramadol too, I don't find it overly addictive, I can do with more or less and I have been know not to need any on the very odd occasion. I manage to change the dose as required. My pain specialist told my GP to give me as much as I need because previously I had to "borrow" from future days if I needed more on a particular day. It is no more addictive than codine based preps x

Hi

Good for you for sticking to your guns. I know sometimes GP's can be seen as a bit intimidating, but we know our own bodies better than we know ourselves.

I've been on Tramadol for about 2 years now along with Co codamol and have found that combination has worked for me. Obviously nothing completely takes the pain away but I found that I was able to continue working while on these meds unlike some of the others I have been on.

One thing I will say though is that when I first started on Tramadol it did make me feel quite nauseous when I first started on them so I just made sure to have a few biscuits before each dose.

Good Luck and I hope you can find some relief from them

animeeno3........ I am curious about the lumps on your feet. I keep getting very painful ones and have written them off to arthritis.

not sure what the lumps are (just in the top of my arches of both feet, have very flat feet), orthotist says they're not painul enough to be fibromas, but in the wrong place to be neuromas, so nobody has any clue what they are! :lol:
