Several months ago I fell and fractured a pelvic bone - Pubic Ramus - 5 cm fx. Anyone familiar with this fx knows it is very painful. After 2 1/2 months my x-rays showed considerable healing and new bone growth. I was informed by my ortho that the muscles would eventually lose the edema and inflamation.

Im a an ex athlete who has had five knee surgeries with 3 TKR with one revision. Tramadol has helped me immensely, been able to go back to coaching soccer. Take a total of 150 at most per day. Extremely effective medication

After trying several medication combinations, the pain specialist prescribed Ultram ER, 300 mg., daily. I consider it a miracle drug as it not only controls my pain, but also has "cured" my restless legs syndrome. Unfortunately, the generic form does not offer the same effects. I have been using the trade name drug but it is very costly. Still, it is worth the relief.

This medication barely worked, however I stayed on it for a number of years before I found out that about 10% of the Caucasian population doesn't have the enzyme that converts this medication to its pain killer form. I have been trying to get off of it by tapering down and it is a nightmare. I have never felt so horrible in my life. If you are just starting this medication, get off of it now and ask for an alternative. These are the absolute worst withdrawal symptoms imaginable. I have been totally non-functional for a week, and I am only just beginning to taper down on it.

Ultram er helps with sleep and pain management so I can do daily activities, just like cleaning. It does lose it's effect after a while and needs to be reevaluated for dosage. Over all this works great. I take celebrex with it, plus lyrica because of other painful muscle myopathy.
