Gandalf didn’t name his walking staff, but his sword was named Glamdring, and by a few other names. King Arthur had his Excalibur. There are many others. A simple Web search finds that swords have names. Walking sticks and canes do not. It must be an elitist thing. Well, meet Tramadol.
This is my cane.
I use it when I go walking and it has come in handy keeping me on my feet and moving. The occasional, frequent, for a while, hip pain I was having is the reason I bought a cane.
The drug Tramadol is better for hip pain, but Tramadol the cane provides extra support. I once forgot to take the drug Tramadol before my walk. I did take the cane. Maybe it’s a partial placebo effect, but my aches didn’t ache all that much. That’s how Tramadol got named. Besides the hip pain, I have a problem with my back muscles tightening up when I walk. When I pause as soon as I feel the tightening, I can walk longer distances. Having Tramadol to lean on helps a lot.
