The version of Tramadol that I'm using is Ultram. I've been having some low back pain from having spine surgery years back and occasionally I get flare ups where it hurts like severe Sciatica pain but it originates from my spine and down my left leg. I'm searching for a little more effective means of pain relief without having to seek a stronger pain med.
This question has also been asked and answered here: Acetaminophen vs ibuprofen: What's the difference?
Tramadol is useless, Tylenol is useless, and Ibuprofen may work but can cause drowsiness and your very limited on number of pills you can take in 24 hour period, Ibuprofen may not last 24 hrs and Ibuprofen is bad for your stomach too.
I generally don't take anything, I live with it everyday because of my old-ass mattress, no money to buy new one.
Leg stretches can help if you can stand the pain, hot soaking bath and a massage if you have a spouse or Money for masseuse.
