I have been taking tramadol for the fibro for about 3 months now and it seems to be owrking for me. I had an incident last week that just blew my mind. My rx said to take 2 pills 2 to 3 times a days. So I eventually had to start taking the two pills 3 times a day. Anyways, I ran out sooner because I was taking the max. dosage that was allowed. I tried to call it in and they freaked out and told me I was taking way too much and no they would not give me any more. The downside to tramadol is that it has nasty withdrawl symptoms. So I ended up having to go to the dr. and not only was I withdrawling like and addict but I was in fibro hell. So I get there and the dr. has this real crappy attitude towards me and I couldnt figure out why. Through the course of the conversation I found out that they thought I was drug seeking. At that point I was so freakin horrified I was speechless. The woman was so callous and cold that I wished she could feel what I did for a while. She wanted to see the rx bottle and she consulted my chart and apparently someone gave me the wrong dosage but they tried to blame it on the rheumatologist even though it was their office who wrote th rx in the first place. We finally got it figured out but now I wonder if I will always have these dr.s looking at me sideways if I say the dosage isnt enough. Please tell me that there are some dr.s out there that dont think this crap is "all in my head" and that I am a drug addict looking to get "high".

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
