sorry to hear about your pain. Tramadol is one of the medications that is prescribed for treatment of chronic pain. It has been used in fibromyalgia and can be successful in some individuals.

Tramadol is not the only medication that can be tried. There are other ones, such as lyrica, cymbalta, savella (milnacipran) etc that have been utilized in management of this condition. Those medications may or may not be covered by your insurance. Chronic pain is an extremely difficult thing to deal with.
