Hi, does anyone take cocodamol 30/500 along with Tramadol?

Hi long story shorter, i had herniated disks L5&S1 in 2013 pure agony gp, didnt give anything told me just paracetmol and dont bother with ibruprfen, kept going back in agony, 5 weeks later she sent me physio saying it was just muscles! He told me its a dad hearnition of L5&S1 and when he heard how gp didnt help at all he wrote a note to give to her, well saw a dif gp with the note he gave me cocdamol 30/500 & 50mg  diclofenic it helped a bit but the pain was really awful-but didnt really help i had bad pins & needles and pain

Down legs and butt cheeks, after seeing physio for 4 months he said cant do more for me its “burning out” and will get better BUT numbness down left leg and into my foot and little toe will maybe come back but may not as not having anyi imflamotories in the first 5 weeks has just crushed the nerves in spine and may never come back... well for the past 6 years im still

Numb and in pain everyday for 6 years i couldnt sleep

For the pain so last year after many many gp trips about this he finally put cocdamol up to last 4 times a day and on repeat as before id been going bk every 2 weeks to the woman gp who didnt give me anythinin the beginning, and my gp at the min put it on repeat and double amount to last a month at a time. After a year of that he put me

On amitrptline 25mg helped me sleep from 1st still no change in pain for 4 months so upto to 50mg. So after a year and half of current gp

Instisting my pain is from

Lacking vit d so all hes done is repeat bloods always comes bk with imflamition, but narproxen does nothing for my pain other than put my bp up (im On ramiprill 10mg) for high bp so thats no good, same if i take ibruprofen. 

Finally after 6 years of never having an xrsy or MRI to see/confirm the L5&S1 herinatin and ruptures i got an mri in july and results 2 days ago... 

it showed in lumber spine L5&S1 Major heriniation & major annular tear in disks... but also disk dengerations in few disk low down. 

The consultant rhuemotogest  

Who sent me

For xrays and the MRI and told me the results has said her plan is...

1) gabapentin/preglabin

2) injections into area 

3) if all those fail to help the SURGERY. 

Which i dont really want the latter..

My question is i have gp in the morning for my medication review and after looking up and speaking to my friend whos a nurse and she uses tranadol for her awful back pain i am setiously needing something to go alongside the cocodamol as that along with no ibrupron or diclofeinc or narproxen as i cant take those for cuz of my high blood pressure my question is does anyone here take cocodamol 30/500 with tramadol? And if so how do they help you with the extra help with tramdol x
