Ponstan helps in headache especially migraine but not neuropathy and central pain but Tramadol yes while giving very bad side effects....dry mouth, dry skin, rashes, acnes and stomach burning discomfort. Both induced ankle swelling.

Ponstan for menstrual migraine and cramps
Up until I was prescribed ponstan i suffered for years with terrible migraine and severe cramping and heavy bleeding with my period. I dreaded that time of the month. I tried every pain killer going apart from ponstan until prescribed by my doctor, after I eventually decided to tell him of my misery. I haven't had a migraine or cramps since and my bleeding has also lessened. I wish I'd known about ponstan years ago.
