Anyone try Tramaden?

I have been searching for alternatives to opiates to relieve very painful episodes in my legs to my buttocks and hips, plus feet.  I think the feet is my diabetic neuropathy and is stabbing-like.  My legs simple ache with pain all over, become flexed and painful.  The pain seems to be deep and one must push deep into my legs for me to verbalize pain, just touching them does not.  When this occurs I can barely walk, am in constant pain which is very bad in the am on awakening, gets worse with walking or exercise of any length although light ambulation helps.  I can attribute some of this to anemia and B-12 deficiency and after a large dosage of B-12, B-6 and Folic Acid, along with deep tissue massage and Soma and Flexeril, my last episode ended, so far so good.  But my history is that these are flare ups in nature and when I am in serious pain, I need to have enough relief to be able to function and work.  I heard of Tramaden (not Tramadol), has anyone used it?  what were your results?  Any other pain remedies like herbs, etc?
