I am afraid of many meds, especially those that can cause addiction/dependance.
I have been having chronic lower back (sacral) and right hip/inguinal pain for 4 months now
Many tests done and specialists seen.
As far as meds.... NSAIDs do not work, I do not want to take the narcotics (scared of addiction), muscle relaxers help a very litte and Neurotin knocks me out (so I don't know if it helps the pain.
Now here is my question... Tramadol.
My GP prescribed it but I have been hesitant in starting it because it is a "sister" drug to the SNRI's (cymbalta, etc).
But it is the only medication that really helps.
For those who have taken / still taking Tramadol, have you ever experienced withdraw? If so, what were the symptoms.
I just don't want to hurt
