szm, that is why I said that tramadol wasn't a good idea due to the addiction and side effects from withdrawal. You would just be replacing one problem with another. I used to only take it maybe once or twice a month for my neck injury but since I developed the nerve problem side effect from the Humira I take it once a day when I get to work and it allows me to be at work.
I try not to take it at weekends to give myself a break. I'm lucky that haven't had seizures but then the info does say that it shouldn't be prescribed to people with history of seizures due to reason it can increase them.
Hopefully the Humira side effects will go away as I have now stopped it but am well aware that they could be permanant, should know by end of September when it is fully out of system. If they are permanant then will be ref on to sort out some proper nerve block medication. At moment taking 30mg of amitriptalyne (spelling?) at night which helps with the pain at night.
Hope you sort your pain problems out and are pain free soon.
