I have been under the care of my PCP for Fibromyalgia. I have thus far been able to control it with diet, exercise, and the occasional Tramadol for the days I can't move (usually once a month). I have had the worst flare ever the past week, and it just won't let up. So, for about five days in a row, I took one Tramadol in the midday. This was Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Today is Wednesday and I haven't had any since then. Ever since Monday, I have been a wreck. Sleeplessness (which I've had) is way worse, I am so anxious my skin feels like it's crawling, and I will cry at the drop of a hat. I have an appointment with the rheumatologist on Monday but I can't take this anxiety anymore. I don't understand what is happening. I know Tramadol can be addictive, but I've never had a problem quitting it before and despite the anti anxiety properties, I only take it when I am in pain. I am in pain while typing this but scared to take another one if this is what withdrawal is like.
