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!
I need to ask if there is a room for people who want to get off of Tramadol? I really need to come off of this medicine, but I feel as though it has completely taken over my life and I'm only 27. I'm scared of coming off of it. I'm even scared that I may not be able to handle being off of it. I'm scared that I could do something stupid or relapse three or more times. I really can't afford to be on it anymore and no one around me seems to understand except my mother. I cannot live like this anymore and I have absolutlely no one to talk to about it. Not even my fiance understands the complexibility behind this addiction. Please help me :'(
Just noticed the typo on my last post. The supplement is Rhodiola. I also took Anxiety Releaf, stress reducing formula, twice a day. Both are fairly cheap at vitamine stores. My first attempt at quitting resulted in no sleep for 4 days and unable to mentally function at all. Using these 2 natural supplements helped me greatly. Tramadal effects Dopamine and Seratonin production. Both are produce during exercise, so doing a vigarous routine each day should help getting their natural production back online. I know that we are all taking it because of injuries/pain, but any little bit you can do helps. Excercising in a pool is the best if your injuries prevent you from doing other forms. Do what you can safely to get the heart rate up. This is helping me, hope it helps others.
