How much tramadol are you coming off of?  Did you taper?
O 15 37.5 g a day for 2 years

I could not taper as am a addict.
I just want more and more.
DR knew this but still gave me them
On 6day of cold turkey.
It's hell on legs
Clonidin really helped and lots of fluids
I also took pramipexal  for restless legs.
The insomnia is still bad
I relapsed 3 times so went 3 times more through withdrawell from tramadol.
My lovely dog was prescribed them so I took hers.

Still getting sweats and bad insomnia.
