    I will be 3 weeks tomorrow! I have to say, I'm still having issues with my feet feeling really warm and antsy at times. I am able to sleep better and other than it being a nuisance, I'm pretty much back to normal. I seriously can't believe I've gone 20 days with no tramadol when I've been taking narcotics for over 10 years (tramadol >800mg daily for 4 years). My intestines are still protesting but I still haven't had the chance to take probiotics. The main thing I've noticed is my appetite is out of control lol I think my body is making up for years of barely eating! I've been on my antidepressants for 3 weeks as well and therapy for same. Not even close to being out of the woods but some days I have motivation to make improvements in my health and in my house. It's still 1 step forward and 10 steps back but at least it's not just 10 steps back ;)

    This is sooooooo GREAT, @KL1475!! Congrats to you!!! I'm super glad to hear that you're feeling pretty much back to normal and sleeping better. I do believe the thing with your feet will dissipate the longer you are off the Tramadol. I'm proud of you, my friend. For quitting the pills and for taking care of yourself. Keep doing the next right thing! And remember that we're always here for you if you need help, support, or just someone to listen. :)

    Don’t give up! My tramadol addiction came to a head in 2013, I ended up seizing in a parking lot from the high dose I was on, cracked my head open and had a severe hemmorage that put me in a coma and caused some frontal lobe damage. i am lucky for the coma because i slept through most of my withdrawal symptoms but i remember every few weeks when i’d run out and the restless leg syndrome would leave me in it for your kids, do it for your family, but most of all, do it for you!
