Four weeks today....but still have some troubles.
After reading everyone's stories on this site (which helped tremendously), I am proud to say that I have been Tramadol free for four weeks today!!!  This was the hardest thing I have ever done physically and mentally and I KNOW I am not out of the woods by any means.  I finally got the strength up to start exercising five days ago and that has helped SO much.  There was no way I could have done it any sooner.
I was taking about 10 to 14 Tramadol a day (50 mg) when I finally quit (November 2nd).  I actually did not taper.  I quit cold turkey.  I had to because I ran out of pills and decided I would not re-order any more.  I had been taking them for two years and no one knew...not my husband, not my parents, not my sister, not my friends.  I have told everyone now and no one is angry with me, as I had first feared.  They are all supportive and proud of my decision.  I did this for my kids...I do not want them to live with the legacy of a pill popping mother.
I have a question to all those out there who have had many more months, years, etc. under their belts.....I am a having a lot of stomach problems (bloating, nausea, etc,) and my sinuses are awful!!!  Is this common to keep having even though it has been a month?  If anyone out there can give me some clue as to when I will feel better completely, I would sure appreciate it.  Thank you.....
