Tramadol would not, NOT, not be the medication for your additional pain. With the many medical and health issues you are dealing with at present, I would go up on the morphine, but only with the approval of your internist and, I think I would talk to my pharmacist regarding drug interactions. Immediate Release morphine 10 mg might be your best bet for breakthrough pain. Talk it over with your healthcare providers. Wishing you good luck with your health issues.
