anykind of prescribed pain reliever causes extreme pain

User Profile
I have had my gallbladder out about a year ago and now everytime I take anykind of prescribed pain reliever, it causes an extreme pain reaction below my lower ribs, I end up in a fetal position moaning in pain. Sometimes it lasts for over an hour. I have other issues right now and have a prescription for Tramadol but can't handle the reactions I am having to it. Im at a loss for what I can do. Is there anything I can do to stop the reaction from the medication?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. NSAIDs pain killers followed by abdominal pain indicates some peptic ulcer disease and needs to be managed with antacids and avoiding NSAIDs, prefer tylenol other safer pain killers.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
