Nerve damage
Has anyone here experienced nerve damage from long term tramadol/opiate use?  I have read that this is possible.  I am having tingling pain in my shoulder blades and soreness down my spine.  Any experiences??  I am 37 days clean of tramadol and 3 days off fiorcet

I'm 27 days off vic's, off an 8-year habit, and I still have tingling in my arms, sometimes legs.    It's not consistent, just sometimes, and occasionally it feels like I'm getting little electrical shocks.    I never thought of it as nerve damage, but you may be onto something.

How did you get off the floircet did you taper off or did you CT of it ? I personally have never heard of nerve damage you would have to go to the doctor and get it check out .

Thanks - for some dumb reason I just assumed that RLS affected just legs.

It has Been pretty consistent since I went off the tramadol. I remember a few days when I was clean of both drugs that I had no pain.  As soon as I relapsed to the fiorcet it started back again.
