Had been given Tramadol to used four times per day. I was miserable could barely lie in bed with back pain extending down my leg ( have spinal stenosis and bulbing discs) also have torn meniscus on right knee that made me miserable because I couldn't straighten it. Started back on Realfen last week, I sleep great, walk great, my hands, knees and back feel great. Wonderful drug

I was prescribed this medication for severe arm, wrist, and elbow pain. After ust a few days, I'm pain free - only feel slight discomfort occaisionally. I'm very happy with the result - started this medicine with a steroid, hope it works without it too.
