The : The effective "treatment window" for your pain medications (tramadol or vicodin) is about 4 to 6 hours. If you take your last painkiller about the time you go to bed, you may simply be running out the clock on these particular medications. A longer-acting painkiller might get you through the night, or at least give you a couple more hours of sleep before you're awakened by your painful joints. Alternatively, a dose of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (celebrex, naproxen, ibuprofen, etc.) at bedtime might extend your sleep time. Ice and/or warm packs could be of benefit, too. Discuss your options with your doctor. He/she might have additional suggestions (e.g., changing your Prednisone dosage or schedule).
