  • First of all get of the tramadol they are really, really bad and do have very nasty side effects. Go back and see your gp and ask for something else. Also request that they refer you to a pain clinic. You could ask your doc about Bu trans morphine pain patch.

    I know what chronic pain is so go see your doc.

    Take care



  • Where are you situated? I know a good spine specialist in Sydney. Get a GP referral to a spine surgeon/specialist. You will probably need to get a CT scan and/ or MRI
