So diagnosed in feb as sero neg RA. I'm on mtx, prednisone, f o.
Went on tramadol from codeine around march 30th for awful hip pain.
I've not taken any tramadol for 2 days now. On april 8th i had steroid injections
to both hip joints. I was in agony after so was taking around 6 50mg tramadol
tablets for a few days. The hip pain has settled enough to not need
painkillers but I'm facing new strange symptoms and to be honest I'm
sick of calling the doctors!!!!! Starting around 1st april i was having night
sweats which have no progressed to lasting nearly all night. As soon
as i chuck the duvet off I'm a shivering wreck, i put it back on and within
minutes I'm sweating like crazy. I've also got a sore throat and tongue
and for a day or two these clammy cold sweats crept into the day too.
Today I'm freezing cold all over, absolutely exhausted from lack of sleep
with a cheesed off husband sick of my complaining!!!!!
After being warned about tramadol being taking it from lots of people my first
thoughts were that was the cause but can you have withdrawal probs
after just a couple of weeks???? Forget to mention that i also have
underactive thyroid so 90% of the time I'm cold. It's saturday so no docs
till monday and i just really dont know what to do with myself!!!! Any
advice gratefully received. Many thanks
