Oops, I can't believe I forgot to mention my best friend, tramadol. The tramadol works great for my pain (so far) without making me sleepy or stupid. As far as where the pain is, that varies from day to day. One day I wake up stiff all over, and it gets better for a while then worsens as a I get tired. Some days I feel like I've been run over by a truck, other days I just have what I call "the weirdness," the creepy crawlies in my legs or the heated seat in my car makes me feel like I am sitting on a hot stove (but it was fine yesterday and will be fine tomorrow.) , I have had pain from my knees up to my chin (thank God I don't have the facial pain that many have). I do have plantar fasciitis, and have noticed the pain is worse than it used to be, some days. And when my (evil, but happy) cat bit me on the face last week, it hurt 50 times more than it should have. I had a really bad run over the holidays, but am doing much better now. Just remember, it stinks, but it's not gonna kill you! Hoping for the best (for all of us), HappyCat.
