I have a horrible pain in my left hip, went to see my doctor and told me it was a muscle pain, she advice to take tramadol with a combination of ibuprofen but I have not found any relief. Has anyone taken 100 mg of tramadol and felt better?
I agree with calling your doctor.
It's important in this day and age to report your prescribed meds are not working because they will assume they are.
I understand his rationale.
Tramadol is a narcotic controlled med.
Ibuprofen is an NSAID.
He is hoping to keep the the dose of Tramadol down. It's a good idea because the pain may be from inflammation. Did he tell you this?
So his rationale would be to use the Ibuprofen to treat the cause of the pain...
Inflammation - the max dose is 1200 mg/day. You have room to move up on this unless there are side effects or medical reasons. The doctor needs to prescribe it even those it's an OTC. Your case is different .
The Tramadol is being used to cover whatever pain you still may be having.
You are on a rather small dose.
Once again... let him decide what to do. He's a good doctor because he is recognizing the fact that you have pain. It's good for you because he's committing himself to helping you :)
You could also help yourself by doing mild exercises (Stretching/Yoga type).
Avoid anything that causes flair-ups.
Dietary - Fluids (water without chlorine and chemicals) plus whatever is recommended. I'm assuming it's inflammation because he prescribed Ibuprofen.
Others include fatty fish, olive oil, ginger,
Cherries/berries, plain unsweetened yogurt.
Turmeric is a good spice.
I'm blanking out on the others. If you are interested I'll gladly look them up.
I hope you feel better :)
Please call him !
