Tramadol for pain, works for me

I have fallen arches, ligament and nerve damage in my feet. I can't even go grocery shopping with out regretting it the next day. I've tried anti-inflammatories, hydrocodone, $400 insoles, and tramadol.
I took hydrocodone (5-15 mg a day) for years before I found tramadol. It worked for a long time but then became not as effective (only helped for 2hrs max). Also I was self medicating as this was before any diagnosis so it became quite pricy and hard to find.
So after finally being diagnosed I discovered tramadol. It kills the pain for much longer (5-8 hours). Also I don't feel as messed up. There is a buzz, especially when you first start taking it, but it doesn't make you as fuzzy. I currently take 150-200 mg a day.
It is the only thing that works for me.
Unfortunately it is incredibly habit forming and the withdrawals are horrible. I took loritabs for years (1 or 2 10mg tabs every day) and never experienced withdrawal symptoms like this. So it's a slippery slope my friends but when you have pain and your livelihood depends on your ability to work, you make tough decisions.
In short: works great for pain, may make you a little drowsy at first but this passes, can cause constipation like opioids, addictive so use caution and stick to your prescribed dosage. Maybe not a good idea for people with substance abuse problems.

It worked great for me

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Nov 2012, had surgery, went through chemo treatments and took this drug for pain. It worked great for me, relieved the pain associated with surgery and helped with anxiety also.
