About Me: Female, 44, City of Angels, CA, member since Jun 2008
I had a severe car accident seven years ago. My lower back was injured. L4 and L5 discs and nerve damage in my right leg. At this point I am going thru withdrawal from Tramadol which my Doc assured me was not dangerous.(IDIOT!) I'm on a few other drugs, but never ever h
[More]ad this withdrawal experience. I was taking 6 pill max for about 6 months. Before that I was on for 4 years 2-3 pills a day. I am in so much pain that I feel like I am dying. It's ridiculous because I have no insurance, hate my Doctors now and have a very demanding job! ACK! Help! Am using The Thomas Method. If I had a full week off I might be able to feel less anxiety. No such luck!
Emily thank you so much for all your journals. I am currently coming off of 13 years of solid tramadol use. I basically cannot even function after 6 weeks off tramadol. I am currently on neurontin which scares me because I am worried about the withdrawal from that. I also am completely and utterly depressed and anxious. Any advise for me at this stage would be so helpful as no one seems to know what to do with me in terms of my doctors.
Emily, I have heard so many wonderful things about your experience and how you help other people. my husband just got out of 7 day detox program yesterday from Tramadol and alcohol. he was taking over 750 pills a month of the 50 milligrams a month if not more and drinking excessively. I was wondering if you could please email me at tara.***@**** or call me personally. 760-810-8151. I need you help! Please....
Emily I just want to say that I dig you so much! every time I read something you posted in the j, it is so moving and tremendously inspiring in every way. Your warmth and empathy shine through every word. Though I am not really withdrawing rignt now, your j carries meaning and depth for me. Thank you.
