Tramadol withdrawl

May 11, 2012 - 4 comments

Ive been taking tramadol for 4 years. And have ran out too early every month of those four. I always find other painkillers to help me get to my next rx date. Its getting way worse tho. Currently im out again and have been taking vicodin which i also abuse. I do have a small back injury and am worried stopping the tramadol will allow my back to hurt. When its bad, it is really painful. I think i have a low pain tollerance. So what do i do? Ive stolen Meds from family and friends even. Its time to get this fixed but honestly i dont have the willpower or the want to quit. But i know i need to before i lose everything. But again im very affraid of my back pain comming back.

I have been clean from tramadol 19 days. I was put on it for hip pain five years ago and was blindsided when i decided after my health had improved, what a nightmare it was to quit. I had rater had the pain then deal with this still ongoing fight with my bodies withdrawals. I hope you can find the strength to move away from the pain killers and work to having a healthy life. Be safe and well

I just dont have the strength. I know i dont. I have no willpower. So i dont know what to do. Im affraid to stop bc i dont want my back to hurt. Im sure i will need to b on some sort of painkiller but i dont know how to manage my use. Ive tried a ton of times.

Ok so my doc approved my refill today but didnt send it. Well they are closed on the weekends so ill have to wait till monday. So i thought " i can do this. My pain wont come back". Boy was i wrong. 12 hours into it and i just got back from the emergency room. They gave me enough for the weekend. I was just honest. I told them ive been taking too much and was feeling fine about it. So what do i do? Right away i take more than im supposed to. See what i mean about will power? God i feel lime such a loser right now
