I finally broke down and tried Tramadol after six months of being afraid to take it. The inflamed nerve pain all over got so bad today, I would have done anything to stop it. The Tramadol is helping. It's only the 50mg dose. And I only took one. Does anyone know if this is really as addictive as I've heard? Like if I stay on it, am I going to end up with heroin/morphine addiction and withdrawal symptoms? I am scared of that, but I do see this has gotten me out of the screaming nerve pain. I'm still achey and stiff, but that awful all over nerve pain is pretty much gone. Anyone else on this drug?
