I have recently injured my knee in the gym and was prescribed Ultram. Now when i was younger about 5 i had Absence Seizures. I am 25 now and have been free of Seizures (99.6% not to happen again) since i was about 13 I was wondering for the days my knee really is bothering me did the doctor make the right choice in giving me this medication. I do not want to risk having a seizure just because i was in pain for a few days and took a pain medicine.
