    Hi,

    Has Tramadol had any negative responses with people here? Especially those with POTS?

    Need some feedback as I have had much greater pain as of late.

    Thanks,

    Justin

    I tried this drug many years ago (1998-1999) for relief of endometriosis pain. It didn't help relieve my pain at all. [ the endo pain responded better to NSAIDs - ibuprofen when moderate, Toradol (ketorolac) when severe]

    I have NMH and POTS and the Tramadol did not seem to give me any bad side effects. At least, I don't remember any bad side effects! But I only tried it a few times.

    Tramadol is not regarded well in our family.

    One pill sent my sister crawling up the walls for three days. Never again, she said. But she is also very sensitive to anything and everything. She had MCS back in the 1970s before it was a thing.

    I tolerate all drugs and everything well. But Tramadol: after a few days of just one at night, the result was lots of tears, anxiety, overheating, blurry vision, and a slight dizziness - the bumping into the hall wall on occasion.

    That said, it gave excellent post-operative pain relief. But the pain was a better and less scary option.

    I should add: no one in our family has POTS. We just don't like Tramadol!
