I finally got another to prescribe me tramadol. You can go to the National Fibromyalgia Association website and ask them for a referral to a fibro- friendly rheumotologist.. I wish all of you had a good doctor who informed you of the pain and work with you in establishing a pain regiment to suit your pain.
I had the perfect cocktail, and it got fouled up after my car accident the hospital i was brought to had me on dilaudid,demerol,morphine,oxycontin,and a oatch, and percocets, and the tld my pc i was delusional and wean me of narcotics, when they said that they meant what they gave me, but my doctor was weaning me off the combo i had for 5 years, and before that it was a game playing with drugs to work, I have used injections,(epidural and steriodal) botox injections, morphine pump inserted and removed after 1 1/2 years, after removed leaking spinal, had emergeny in er on xmas, to fix leak-never went back to that doctor- now i just stopped everything on my own since las november, no ambien, diazepam, no ocs, just high blood pressure,hormones, and protonix, I've had the last shot I can in the l4.l5 and i asked if i could try the fentynal patch, it lasts 72 hours, new to it but i will let you know how it goes, i also had a kyphoplasty, to fix breaks in back, but i am determined to make them fic whatevet is causing the pain, if they don't want to provide me with meds, they better figure out what's wrong, it's really hard, bcuz people don't believe you're sick, but i would try and see if u cld get the patch, suggest it, and l them you would like to try it, so pills aren't around house, just keep fighting for it i know its hard but stand your ground marian.

4 Answers (question resolved) - Posted in: rheumatoid arthritis, pain, tramadol - Answer: Not at all. It works best if you keep a level in your body.
Some days it's hard to even walk. Thank you. I was thinking about possibly going to a pain specialist but I truly don't want to become dependent on anything strong. I guess my Doctor's lack of compassion is probably based on some bad experience but that doesn't help me. Some days even with the tramadol, I just want to cry from all the pain.
I am seriously thinking about finding a new Dr., Thanks, Onefoot. I did leave them a message 2 days ago but no one has ever called me back.
Today I went to the doctor because my pain has been worse, and I also want to find ways to control my pain when I can't smoke. I was told that because the DEA declared tramadol a controlled substance, that if I wanted to continue taking tramadol that I had to sign a 'contract' full of little nuggets like 'do not.

I had to go over my PM's head to patient advocacy at one point, we had a meeting and worked out a new plan. Although at the time it did not include what I am doing now. Ask them what has happened that the medication was withdrawn. Be calm, if they stick to their guns, perhaps a trip to your regular Dr.
