  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
    After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.
  • Mom died of stomach blockage while on tramadol
    my mom was taking tramadol for hip pain. she went in the hospital for a hip replacement and died 3 days after the surgery in the hospital from an intestinal blockage
  • Using tramadol with anti-depressants
    Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants

    I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.
  • Imitrex and vasomotor rhinitis
    I have vasomotor rhinitis that triggers migraines. I am sinsitive to smells and the air feels so thin that it triggers a migraine every time. So when i get a migraine of course i take my imitrex. So i got to thinking, if imitrex is a vaso constrictor then it should work on my vasomotor rhinitis, which means that my sinuses are dilated. So now when i feel my vasomotor rhinitis acting up, i have gone ahead and taken my imitrex and it has actually prevented a migraine. I now use my imitrex as treatment for my masomotor rhinitis. Lucky for me it may be once a month that i have to treat it.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.

    I am afraid to take Gabapentin. I do not suffer from seizures but I hear people can have a seizure taking this med, is that for real truth or as they say 10% of 36,000.
