I hate admitting this, but I'm so very grateful for tramadol! When nurofen and panadol aren't doing the trick, out comes the tramadol and I feel better within hours usually.
Yesterday was a BAD pain day. I think the whole thing caught up to me because today I couldn't seem to get out of bed. I slept until 4pm this afternoon, after sleeping all last night. I think my body went into shut-down mode and forced me to sleep, because I couldn't lift my head off the pillow to save myself.
BUT -- despite the fact that this sounds like a depressing post, after I got some much needed sleep and pain killers, I'm feeling a bit better now. I should be in bed now, since it's nearly midnight - but I'm finally hungry -- so I'm going to snack on something then off to bed I go.
Tramadol, you do wonders!!!
