I am so happy you are finally free of the tramadol. It is incredibly difficult to withdraw and it can feel totally overwhelming. Wonderful it is now out of your life. I find that if I am stiff or sore, the more I walk the better it feels. I think it might be getting blood circulating round the muscles healing them and loosening them up? Just my little theory though. They say that full healing can take a year but as long as you are seeing periods of normality it seems as if you are on your way!
