I am having a problem swallowing after taking Tramadol. Feels like my food is stuck at the top of the esophagus and I end up regurgitating. Also when I eat spicy or tart foods I have pain at the top of my stomach.
While it can cause nausea, swallowing problems aren't part of the side effects. You should probably talk to your dr about it.
Hi, the only thing i can think of is when i used to take Tramadol capsules, and if not taken with enough fluids they would get stuck during their way down my oesophagus causing a burning sensation...
Hello Becky carol
Although I never took tramadol, I am definitely not a pro at all on this med..with that being said... I suggest you see a gi... I have the save issue, and not saying this is what you have, but I have acid reflux, gerd, and a hiatal hernia... so it wouldn't hurt to do and endoscopy to see what's going on down there to be on the safe side... good luck/ keep us updated...
I occasionally have problems swallowing as well. Like I'm unable to swallow voluntarily. Best to eat BEFORE taking Tramadol. Imo
Very good question. I took tramadol in the past and now I have Barrett Esophagus. I am not sure if the medication caused this condition. I will ask my GI and ENT doctor on my next appointment. My suggestion is to talk with your doctor about it.
I take tramadol and also have just been diagnosed w Barrett’s esophagus and GERD. I asked if tramadol would’ve caused - answer from my GI was no but NSAIDS will cause esophagus issues and Barretts. I used to take like candy due to pain issues.
I dont think so ut im seeing my GI tomorrow so I will ask him.
Hi... Ive been using tramadol for years and i was just diagnosed with barrett's esophagus. But i also took advill as well. Now Dr has me on protonix and i still take 1 tramadol a day. No more nsaids. Good luck
