So they say I have Fibro, I think that is garbage and working on a diagnosis through research . I was blessed with shots of tramadol 1time a week for 3 weeks , it helped me get through a tight period of having fieldtrips that were over a mile long. I could barely stand much less walk and a mile (no way).
There was a guy on here a few weeks ago, he took 8 x 200mg before bedtime, that is totally over the top. And you cannot just stop taking Tramadol without side-effects.
