Tramadol (100mg) for arthrosis

Tramadol (50mg) for pain (general)

neck pain, as well as shoulder and arm pain. had some troubles for the first few days but they subsided after that, this is a good medication against extreme pain. Since i'm an alcoholic this medication in combination made me go on a weird trip and i saw indians coming out of my power outlets, it was kind of fun. :)

Tramadol (50mg) for joint pain

Lots of joint pain from Essure. Tramadol prescribed while waiting for operation. Paracetamol didn't work, Tramadol keeps the worst pain at bay so I can sit, lie and walk. Sort of. In general fairly happy.

Tramadol (100mg) for kidney stone(s)

Having a nephritis colic (or renal calculus), the emergency doctor prescribed this medication to combine with paracetamol. In my home, this remedy works pretty well but the side effects are really unpleasant. The nausea is recurring and the feeling of being "broken" is quite powerful. Take it carefully.

Tramadol (50mg) for gallstones

Very effective medication against pain, but side effects are unbearable. I could not stand for more than 2 minutes because I had the head turning. My surgeon prescribed it three times a day for 8 days, but I stopped after three days. I'll let you guess my condition. Then I started to have stomach aches (well I admit, I do not know if there is a link or not). And say it's opium. For the next p...

Tramadol (100mg/ml) for low back pain

I've had pain in my coccyx for years. I've been using tramadol since 2014 and it works well for the pain. But I do get a burning feeling in my eyes, the doctor thinks it's not anything to do with the tramadol. He referred me to the ophthalmologist. I'm curious to see if eye problems are some of the side effects.

Tramadol (200mg) for neuralgia

this drug is worse than the illness but whenever I say I want to stop all I hear is that I need to see the psychiatrist even though I don't even have one! Side effects: disturbed personality, often feeling list, sleeplessness waking 3 or 4 times a night, anxiety and panic, cold sweats and often feel like my life is over, with no future.

Tramadol (300mg) for bronchitis

Got this after being diagnosed with bronchitis. I now take it for period pains because of my severe cramps. Small tablets and easy to swallow. It makes me really dizzy, but at least I'm free of pain! That's the most important thing.

Tramadol (50) for joint pain

After twisting my knee I managed to injure my meniscus. Severe pain and very unsteady. Tramadol did little apart from make me fuzzy and nauseous. I've now got diclofenac and it's working brilliantly and I can function again.

Tramadol (50mg) for hernia

I use this when needed for a burning nerve pain in my bottom because of a hernia in my back. After reading some of the experiences on here I was a little wary of taking it but luckily I've had next to no side effects! Just a bit of grogginess the first few days. Works really well for the pain that I occasionally get so I'm quite happy.

Tramadol (50mg) for broken bone

Because I broke three vertebrae, the GP prescribed me 50 mg Tramadol. The first day I took three tablets and the following morning just one. Then I had severe side effects/allergic reactions. In one 24-hour period nauseous and vomiting, cold sweats, talking with a thick tongue, I was really worried for myself. The "emergency" doctor gave me something intravenously. It took three days before the...

Tramadol (50mg) for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

I’ve been using tramadol for chronic pain as a result of Ehlers danlos syndrome (congenital collagen deformity) for several years. I’m very satisfied with this medicine, it takes the sharp edge off the pain, so I can get through the day.

Tramadol (100mg) for polymyalga rheumatica

Initially prescribed 500 because of the rheumatism but when that stopped working went up to 1000. Pain disappeared immediately but only worked for me for about 3/4 of an hour and you're only allowed 1 every 24 hours. Not one single problem with side effects. Even though this is less effective than the morphine, I'd still rather take it as otherwise I spend all day crouched over the toilet.

Tramadol (50mg) for rheumatism

I use a maximum of 3 a day and every 3 months I quit tramadol for 1 month after my injection of depomedrol. I have no withdrawal symptoms. This I do because experience has learned it's more effective this way and there is no need to use more. No real side effects. When I take the first capsule nothing happens, it starts working by taking the second capsule, which I take after an hour. The pain ...

Tramadol (100mg) for pain (general)

This made me incredibly sick and stressed, and didn't help with the pain. I was getting in trouble with the staff at the hospital because I was eating so little and lost so much weight. But this medicine left me without any appetite. I had to force myself to eat otherwise I would never have got better. It was terrible. I definitely do not want this rubbish again.

Tramadol (50mg) for bruised ribs

I have bruised ribs, bottom left and a lot of pain. Took a capsule in the afternoon and I turned unnaturally happy. The prescription said to take 1 or 2 capsules, 4 times a day. So before going to bed I took 2 more. I felt a bit funny in my head after a while. Went to sleep and woke up very dizzy, nauseous, with tingling feet and heavy sweating. I felt like fainting which gave quite a scare. Af...

Tramadol (100mg) for hernia

Took this medicine for severe back pain radiating down into my legs, because of a hernia. For me it didn't help a great deal. It increased my pain threshold somewhat which meant I was able to function. I took 3 x 100 mg a day for between one month and 4. After the operation, happy to come off it.

Tramadol (50mg) for hernia

After having a bad back hernia for 4 months, I was prescribed tramadol in combination with paracetamol. It takes away the worst of the pain. But you feel as sluggish as a sloth. 2 months later I had a hernia operation. After a week I was supposed to stop taking tramadol and everything else. So that's what I did, as prescribed by the doctor, specialist, physiotherapist and the GP. But you must N...

Because of severe pain in my neck and lower back vertebrae, I can hardly exercise any more. Even walking upright is becoming more and more difficult. Took diclofenac for it at first but I suffered an (extreme) allergic reaction to it. The GP prescribed tramadol after that. I take one capsule if I go cycling, playing golf, etc. But it only works for me for about 2.5-3 hours at which point I am u...

Tramadol (50mg) for dysmenorrhea / menstrual pain

Probably hypersensitive to this medication. Lots of problems with side-effects. I have used this medicine for a long time (one to 4 capsules per day, if needed) before I realised that I was hypersensitive and I had to stop taking this medicine and ask for another one. In addition I was taking metoclopramide for the nausea, but only when it was unbearable.

After a ski accident all of the ligaments in my collarbone and shoulder had torn. Grade three. Localised injections with Lidocaine. Afterwards switched to tramadol. Very effective. I think I might have taken too much of it. Off the chart with drowsiness but happy that it took the pain away. I took it five years ago for a hernia in my neck.
