I have been on tramadol for back pain for about
2 months. It was helping somewhat during the day but at night it gets so bad. My Doctor told me I can take 2 at a time. I have been doing that for a few weeks and it is just not helping. He also has me on Sevella. I have been on it for 2 weeks and no relief yet. Does anyone know how long it takes to start working? Someone on here did tell me it only works on 30% of people with FM. What is next? I am so frustrated. My back, neck, shoulders hurt constantly. My earlobes even hurt when I woke up today.
I am sorry I am venting but I just need some advice on what I should tell my doctor. (I am going to see him on Tuesday if I can get an appointment) I hope he believes me that my meds are not working. I know I should see a Rheumatologist but my insurance wont pay for that. I know my doctor has to know something about fibro since he is the one who thinks I have it.
Thanks for reading.
