My name is Adam and in 2004 I broke my neck in four places (c3, c4, c5, & c6). Since then I have been taking tramadol and paracetamol for the pain. Everyday I take these meds as I suffer from chronic pain, where at times it can get really bad. I am only 23 and am a bit worried about what lies ahead for me. I am a bit concerned about the long term affects of tramadol and/or if there is any other medications I could take for strong neck pain that will be okay for me to take for the rest of my life (I’m guessing). Tramadol really helps me, however I am not too sure about the long term effects that tramadol will have on my insides.
If anyone can help or advice me of anything, I would greatly greatly appreciate it.
Thank you very much for your time
