Hello, I'm Dr. Deb.

I recently came online and see that your question about Tessa hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response, but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.
I do have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:

1. It looks as if part of your question may have been cut off. Could you please clarify what happens when "she walks and walks"?

2. Can you provide the dosage amounts of the Tramadol and Gabapentin that she's taking?

3. Any other signs such as confusion or inappropriate urinating or defecating in the house?

Since it looks as if you are currently offline, there may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.
Thanks for your patience. Deb
