Hello Mike, i am Martha . I have the same medical conditions except I also have CAD cardiac artery disease and COPD. The asthma,c o p d I have because my. Life has been surrounded by chain smokers. My doctor must be deaf. She ignores everything I say. I am on Tramadol naproxin, the doctor prescribed blood thinners I will not take the pills. I am afraid of uncontrollable!e bleeding.😏

Hi Mike! Welcome to the community. I live in Ohio USA. I'm sorry to hear of your doctors decision. I have taken tramadol and it stops working. I just stopped taking it again. My doc didn't give me anything else but I also take Lyrica. I have fibromyalgia.

Hi thanks for your nice replies. It seems to me that some Dr' s think only THEY know and you are to stupid to know any thing. The thing is its all good and well to sit behind a desk and give out there all mighty higher than though prescription to you but THEY aren't the one who are suffering. And I also notice if you come up with a sensible logical answer they DO NOT Like it. So please try to remember to act thick and stupid and the Dr will get on fine with you. Meanwhile stay in pain.
