Cathy, Ask your doctor.
You are taking an extremely small dose, and your pain may be increasing. Only your doctor can advise you.
The bad thing about tramadol is that it's very addicting, some say more than opioids.
I take tramadol 3-4 times a day because it's the only thing that helps a little for my chronic pain. I don't react much, if at all, to opioids. Tramadol raises my serotonin and seems to treat pain a little so I can not be impossibly miserable. This is with my doctor's prescription, after years of trying every drug under the sun, even MJ, and multiple injections and nerve burning.
Again, take this up with your doctor!
