Hi folks. Following an accident when I suffered an L1 burst fracture and diagnosed T12 complete I have been left with horrific lower body neuropathic pain. I take 800 paracetamol daily, 900 pregabalin, 200 baclofen and 800 tramadol. The pain manages to get through all this. In London I was advised to try adjusting levels of these pills myself to find the best mix. I found I needed ibuprofen on top off this and extra tramadol just to be able to function, up to 1600 ibu and and an extra 400 tram. I have recently moved to lincolnshire where the drs a not willing to prescribe these doses. They have just started me on amitryptiline, which I know from my time in hospital turns me into a zombie.
Are there any of you that take over the recommended tramadol, and how you conviced your drs it was needed. I don't have a long term pain specialist at the moment.
