Hello, Nike. Welcome to the Fibro forum. I'm sorry you have Fibro, but at least you don't have to have it alone! ;)
Let me direct you to our first thread, "Fibro 101." That could help you a lot with learning about
our lovely condition...it has so many helpful links.
For instance, there's a link there all about
Serotonin Syndrome - which can occur with certain mixes of meds. I know Tramadol can trigger it, mixed with the wrong things...maybe even alone - I'm not sure.
I used to take Tramadol for pain, along with Nortriptyline and Clonazepam for sleep. I've had to switch to stronger pain meds, unfortunately, but I hope to get better enough to go back down to it. It was effective for my pain at that time, and I think also gave me a little energy.
Do you feel like it's helping you?
I hope you'll keep posting, because we are here to help!
