After a long week of increasing pain I took my first prescription pain pill in a long time. The doctor gave me tramadol. It was great, I was out of bed and painting and felt decent for a change for a couple of hours before bed. Then I went to bed and woke about an hour later with crazy itching. Another medication I will need to add to my no thank you list. Luckily itching is the only symptom so no epi pen needed.
