    Morning all, I have recently taken myself off Tramadol, which I had been taking for approx 3 years for arthritis. I was taking too many and found myself taking them when I wasn't even in pain. The withdrawal was horrendous and my sugar levels were all over the place, very high and taking a lot of novarapid to get them down again. The symptoms are easing off now, although still got shocking restless legs, has any one else experienced anything like this? Had my blood test this morning for my six month HbA1c, not holding my breathe for a good result!"
