That's a rough one. NSAIDS cause gastritis and ulcers, narcotics cause nausea and constipation. Tramadol causes constipation, but not usually nausea. Its pretty much try it and see if it bothers you, whatever is prescribed.

Kaismama is right - it is trial and error for all of us. I haw Crohns, and have to be extremely careful what I eat and meds I take. After 28+ yrs, I still haven't found the "combo" that works best for me. Keep trying, what works for one may or may not work for another.

When pain is severe, go to the doctor or ER. severe pain does not respond to anything but what they have at a hospital. If it is sudden or affects the abdomen it could be internal bleeding and affect your life. Your question is unclear if this is long term or sudden. Either way, please see the doctor.

your doctor should try you on something that they think is the best for you
