Tramadol

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Tramadol

I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this medication.

I began having pain in my left side a couple of weeks ago. a CT scan revealed a 9mm kidney stone. My gp offered Percocet but since I don't do well with codeine based drugs, I asked for something else. She prescribed Tramadol and while it was moderately effective for the kidney stone pain, I was pleasantly surprised that it took away the burning/needle pain in my legs and feet. i was actually able to sleep on my back while taking this med (something I haven't been able to do in years though I don't know why).
I had lithotripsy last week so the kidney stone is gone...but so is my Tramadol.
My MS doc prescribed gabapentin a couple years ago for nerve pain but I didn't care for the brain fog feeling it gave me. I'm wondering if Tramadol is a viable request for my nerve pain.
