Yes, I have thought about Malic acid actually! Been talking to the gals in the Fibro forum about it. I just need to run it past my rheumy first.
I'm not on Tramadol, but it's lesser sister - Tramacet. It's shorter acting and not as addictive. I take a benzodiazapine (tranquilizer) as an anti-seizure medication. The two aren't mixing very well.... I'm WAY over sedated when I take my pills. NOt sure what to do about this..... Can't quit the seizure med cold turkey. I'd end up in a treatment center with massive withdrawl, LOL. I have to talk to my doctor on Tuesday about all this. It's not going to work for me if I can't function during the day or drive! The Tramacet works brilliantly for the pain though.
Patty, I also wonder what the heck is flaring now too. All three of those mimick each other so much. I'm doing my best to stay positive. It's really hard. The Fibro insomnia took hold of me last night. Even after taking my pain med and the seizure med, I was over sedated and fell asleep, but couldn't stay asleep. I feel like a yetty this morning..... Stop the world, I want to get off, LOL!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
