Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I'm using tramadol without any reason by now. I developed a physical and mental addiction, whose physical signs of withdrawal are bearable but the mental signs are too severe. My mood goes from mania to depression immediately.
