Opioids Make me Nauseated - help!
Has anyone found a way to take Tramadol or Norco without getting very nauseated? Or perhaps something that will effectively alleviate pain that is not an opioid? I have serious osteoporosis, degenerative back disease, stenosis, etc. I receive facet joint injections and radiofrequency ablations on an alternating basis, which work. However, there is break through pain, and the tx can wear off unexpectedly. I've tried taking with Zofran, and ginger, but that didn't help. The nausea is worse than the pain….. I cannot take NSAIDs, and Tylenol has a minimal effect. I'm 73, 120 lbs, exercise 4x/wk, and work with a Physical Therapist. Please let me know if you have found something to be effective. Perhaps a different opioid, but I worry that the result will be the same. Hope you all are having a good day! Thank you, Sue
