I am still having some needed pain relief, thanks to Ultram. My hips still hurt but the pain is manageable. I am also able to exercise, and stretch, which is an important part of my pain relief. I have also stopped taking Lyrica, as I refuse to be bed bound and feel like a zombie. I am continuing to take LigaplexII and it seems to help my joints and muscle move better. Gentle huggies, Deana.
