I took 2 50 mg tramadol's last night to help with the pain from a pulled muscle. Last night was one of the worst nights ever. About an hour and a half after I took the pills I felt groggy and tired, however I could NOT sleep. I was awake off and on the entire night. I am not sure if it was due to the chest tightness/pain or if it simply made me jittery. I have a feeling it was a combination of the two. I felt like someone was squeezing my lungs not allowing me to take in enough air as well as tightness/pain. The pain would ease up giving me relief but would come right back after a few minutes. I will NOT be taking those pills anymore.
FYI- I am a 35 year old female. I do not have hypertension.
