I'm very allergic to any opioids. I can't even eat any food with poppy seeds. It causes a rash around my mouth and if I eat enough of it, my throat swells up.
My PCP once gave me a prescription for Tramadol for pain. I took one just before escorting some students to a competition.
I was proctoring a test and couldn't wait to get out of the room to go lose my breakfast. I was dizzy and couldn't even hold down a cracker. My students were winning an athletic competition and dragged me to the gym to watch. I had to sit next to a trash can because I kept throwing up. I was seeing two or three of each student as they played basketball.
After we got home, my husband found that Tramadol is an opiate.
When I had an emergency appendectomy, I woke up horribly sick and vomited all night.
I am really worried about what I will possibly be able to be given for pain in the hospital.
I react so badly to most painkillers, the only things that I've been able to use is Aleve for moderate pain and Ibuprophen 800 for sever pain.
Does anyone else have any experience with medicine allergies?
