Hi, my name is Gary and I have been on tramadol for approx 5 years for pain related to my multiple sclerosis, to be fair it did help a little, recently I developed swelling, redness and pain in both legs and was told to just double my dose of tramadol from 4x50mg a day to 8x50mg a day. Well I did and by the end of the first week I felt like I had been hit by the anxiety bus. I had blood tests done regarding the swelling and was told it was cellulitis and given stockings,water tablets and when I explained that I felt really bad was told to revert to my original dose of tramadol, my anxiety, shakes and legs are awful, I'm woken every morning with bad anxiety..... I have decided to taper by dropping 1 x 50mg every 4 days and it is difficult, I've been on tramadol for so long and only doubled my dose for a week so thought it would be straight forward to change back but jesus this is hard.........and I keep over thinking that this cant be the tramadol it can't be withdrawals....... Am I wrong??? Please??
