Day 3 of coming off ultram

I have been taking about 15-20 Ultrams a day for the past 2.5 years. I got the stomach virus ( was still taking the Ultrams) three days ago, and decided that this was the best time to come off this evil drug! I had been clean for 4 years from a hydro addiction. I had gone to a detox/treatment facility. I had never felt better. Then, I started having knee issues, had surgery for a torn meniscus, and got back on Ultrams. I run marathons, and I haven't done any running in 3 days. I have pushed the fluids, taken the b vitamins, vitamin C and drank my Pro-Sculpt from GNC that I drink before I run. I believe God is the only one that can get me through this, although I need to make the decision that I am going to do it. Right now all I am experiencing is the body aches and lack of energy. I always thought Ultrams were like advil or Tylenol! They said, "they are not a narcotic and you can't get addicted to them! Fooey!! I can say that I am blessed that I haven't had all the "full blown " symptoms of w/d, or when I had the stomach virus, I could have gotten rid of everything then. When I did get the stomach virus, I had taken ultrams  that day, so I don't think it was because of w/d. My question is, when in the world can I start running again and feel like I'm back to my old self. These are horrible, horrible pills.
