Tramadol, A Pain Killer

Now a days, people used to claim of positional back pain. Most often, it is due to improper posture when sitting and even standing with no specific age bracket being affected. For the younger generation is usually because of prolong improper sitting position when in front of the computer. But with the older one, it’s no doubt, age causes the back pains.
Back are supposed to be treated easily with just mild pain reliever. However, there are a number of people considering tramadol, a narcotic-like pain reliever, as a routine pain-reliever which is not good. Perhaps, it is addictive. It is not an NSAID, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.Yes, it relieves pain! However, there are also a lot of things to consider when taking the drug to relieve pain. It shouldn’t be taken more than the normal dosage because of unwanted side effects like seizures, and as I have said, it is addictive, so most likely, the one taking it might be looking more for the drug and use it not just for therapeutic use. Aside from that, the drug is not good to be taken along with alcohol, narcotic drugs and more. It is even not advised for people taking drugs for seizure because it might cause a prolongation and increase frequency of seizure.

Generally, tramadol is a good drug but must be taken under supervision with medical practitioners.

The QWOP Game

Have you tried the QWOP game?

Actually, it’s one trending hit online game lately. I, myself, haven’t tried it yet, but I am somehow curious of how it’s gonna be played so I look over the internet some information about it. Here below.

QWOP games is also a Olympic running simulation game that can be played only with four keys. In QWOP game you’re playing an Olympic athlete named Qwop who participated in the sprint race of 100 meters in an Olympic Games.

QWOP game: running simulation game

For play QWOP games, there are four buttons that can be used, namely the Q, W, O and P. From this it can be known why the game is called QWOP game. Gamers must strive for Qwop could run as far as possible without falling.

QWOP game: atest radgoll game

If you need help, there is the question mark button you can press in the top left corner of the screen game. Or if you feel you will lose, you can simply restart by pressing the R key.

I have also read that it’s just a flash game so no hassles and other resources needed. Hmp! Lemme try downloading one later after our classes this afternoon.

Anyway, earlier, while looking for details about the QWOP game, I also stumbled upon the no credit check payday loans. It was shining in my eyes so a skip the QWOP game first and spent a minute checking it because, as I have shared to you before, that I once applied for payday loans online but was rejected. I shared it with M but he just laughed at me and even seconded with the reply of the payday loan online personnel. This time, the one I recently checked, I’ll go with it again later same as with the QWOP game. This really need a second thoughts.

I’ll update more with my new QWOP game addiction.

Elvis Presley: Jailhouse Rock

Another retro song which I often heard last night was Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock. This song is really cool. I love to sing this at home especially when am getting emo! Hahaha..
