Thought I'd try to reply once more before I give up. Don't know if it's the board or me.

Made it through another night. I'm really suprised that I am NOT having trouble sleeping. I know that if I took my last dose of Ultram too late at night, it would keep me up. Always had trouble sleeping anyway. It's almost as if my body is switching back on.

And yes...using the bathroom so often and effectively (to put it nicely), is new for me. One of the side effects to that drug is constipation. NO LONGER AN ISSUE! Although that too seems to have calmed down this morning. I learned to eat VERY lightly yesterday. I felt better around dinner time and ate a normal meal...BIG MISTAKE.

No sweats lastnight. The past 2 nights I had to get up, change the bed and my PJ's and shower.

Still having brain "flashes", but they don't seem to be as often. And my neck is spasming a little still.

So how are you today? Is it physicaly easier tapering?
Hi MsTwisted1 ! :)

I tried to respond to your post last night but somehow it didn't get through, so hopefully you'll get this one.

I wanted to say how sorry I was that you've suffered from this back injury. Being in chronic pain is no fun at all and the longer it lingers the harder it gets to deal with. I'm also a fellow back pain sufferer, so I know how frustrating it can be. :(

I don't know much about withdrawl symptoms from prescription drugs but I can imagine after being on them for 3 years it would be tough on your body to just quit like that. Your doctor should have given you a taper or something to ease you off of them I think...especially if he was the prescribing doctor all this time and would know about the withdrawl side-effects.

I pray and wish you the best of luck and I'm sure there'll be someone along to help you out. Most of all I pray that your back pain is now manageable (or gone completely) and that you can go forward without pain!

Best wishes,

P.S. It's NOT your fault that this happened to you and there's no way you could have known. When a person is in pain and is prescribed a medication for it, they truly need it. My thoughts are with you as you overcome this.
