As long as I can remember, I have been bothered by a stuffy nose, which causes difficulty breathing. Because I hate taking medicines, I have mostly just tolerated the symptoms. Now that I take a couple of Tramadol tabs every morning for my back and leg pain, I find that both nostrils are wide open and I can breathe freely all day long. I've experimented with this, too, alternating NOT taking the med and noticing stuffiness, then TAKING the tabs and almost immediately noticing my stuffy nose opening up, so I'm sure this is not just coincidental.

NOW --- has anyone else had such an experience, or am I just as weird as some say I am?
