I take tramadol every day and if I forget a dose I feel absolutely ROTTEN. I would say you're definitely experiencing withdrawal from the tramadol. If you do want to come off it you will need to speak to your GP & don't just stop taking it - you will need to wean yourself off it so you don't get ill. X

I have been trying to stop my painkillers too but it seems hopeless as even though i am 4 days in and had some really bad nights (sweats then freezing and then if i get to sleep i have really bad dreams, feeling sick and more) all thats happening is the fibro pain is much worse now. I really do not want to live like this..
