I am out of my tramadol and because timing with the dr I will not get my dose tonight. I have different doses, smaller, from the past I will have to make due with. I hate being dependent. I told the nurse that I want off of it and when she talks to the dr about refilling it to please tell her that is my goal. I am hoping the withdrawals are not to bad. I am pretty sure I don't need it anymore. I have back and knee issues but I think a lot of my issues was my hip and with the thigh pain gone it is time to try. Wish me luck. From what I have read this is not going to be fun and I am a bit scared.
