Hi, just signed up as I suffer chronic pain after falling from a 5th floor window 4 years ago. I've taken tramadol and gabapentine since then and have a very painful back which seizes up at every available moment. A few months ago I changed to extended release tramadol as the usual dose had stopped working. Now after a short time the ER tramadol isn't giving much relief and the dr said the next step is morphine.
Have others found that morphine worked for them? I'm not keen to take it as the gabapentine makes me scattier than normal (which is really very scatty) and am worried I'll end up zonked out every day.
