Advice & Tips: I had no problems what so ever! I switched Neurologist and my new DR said Tramadol has Seizures as a side effect and would no longer perscribe it for my pain! Now He wants me to go see a PAIN MANAGEMENT Person!!! I am Refusing FOR NOW!! But I cant stand the Pain for much longer so just hurting myself! THERE was no impact on my life at all to take these meds. Now I have Muscle Spasms and Joints Pains that My twice a day Celebrex does not take care of!!!!
