Welcome!!! I take Tramadol for pain. Its helped a lot!!! I also take Ibuprofen with it when its really bad. Aleve actually makes my pain worse.. I don't know why, but it does.
I also take a lot of warm showers when I'm cramped up. It really helps. I use a heating pad a lot, too. Alot of folks here like their bed buddies, I don't use one because I have problems with hot flashes and night sweats.
The advice that Sherrine gave you is spot on.. she really knows her stuff!!! I plan to start the malic acid/magnesium too. As long as it works well with my regualar meds.
Hope you find some releif soon.
