Dr. thinking I may have an issue with serotonin carcinoid/syndrome-bad reaction to prednisone therapy this time? stomach acid, then crazy flashing of skin/hive like? with and without sweating, agitation, rapid heart beat, high blood pressure-150/85, and running temp 101.5
just seen, took me off tramadol, (which I have taken for years), added hydroxyzine, and is having me do 5-HIAA. Question is what caused all this? Never had an issue before now with prednisone or tramadol?
Is it possible that the prednisone caused this?

Wow, was I glad to see this. 27 doesnt seem like a lot - but when you are one of them ... 40 y/o female - coughing was primary symptom when went to ENT - was given Tramadol as rx to help suppress cough ... stopped coughing a while but seemed more related to weather changes which is the norm for me ... but kept taking rx - a month in and now having pretty uncomfortable acid reflux symptoms and even some asthma like stuff going on - weird. Quitting the stuff tonite.

I'm a male, 58 years old. Have been taking Tramadol for 3-4 years, currently using (3) 50mg tabs in the evening, one between 5:00-7:00,one at 9:00 & one around 1:00 A.M. Also, take (2)Vicodin(7.5/325) at night, Gabapentin (2)(300mg) capsules at night, flexeril (1)(10mg) and was using ibuprofen when needed. This is all for lower back pain that only bothers me at night. Even applying DMSO & Ben Gay topically when the pills don't quite take away the pain. I let the DMSO soak in for 20-30 minutes and the put Ben Gay on top of it. I spent many years lifting heavy weights and wore the cartilage down in my back and other joints. One year ago I woke up at 4:00 A.M. with "fluttering" feeling behind my sternum. Went to the emergency, heart was fine. Idiot doctors diagnosed it as anxiety. Same thing happened the next night. Same diagnosis. First of all, don't most people going to the emergency have some level of anxiety? After going to my GP he diagnosed it as GERD. Why don't emergency room doctors and nurses know all the symptoms of GERD, such as palpitations behind the sternum where you heart & esophagus are located. Cost me two emergency visits with no insurance. IDIOTS!! I was taking (6) Tramadol a year ago, now down to 2 1/2 to 3 nightly. I think the Tramadol causes insomnia also, I use over the counter sleeping pills & melatonin & valerian to help me sleep. I'm now looking into everything that I take to determine which might cause GERD.
