Codeine and Nada
Last updated: January 2023
I have been using Tramadol for years.
My RA doc asked me to see a pain doc. I actually don’t understand this.
I tried it - nada. Had a crushing flare. Took two T3s … ZIPPO … lost most of Saturday and Sunday due to major flares.
Sunday night went back to 100mg of Tramadol…Monday morning, 100mg Tramadol and 10mg prednisone- wow, feeling great!
But prednisone … went into a friend’s office.
“Are you ok?”
My face was so red, he was concerned. The skin on finger joints is best red.
Eating like a horse.
But I feel good.
