I am so glad that you are ok, that must have been so frightening. I had a similar reaction to Ultram yrs ago when I got the Shingles. I see so many ppl here take it for the pain and it really seems to help them, the mere mention of the word upsets me.
I had Shingles many times, the 1st time I was given Ultram and I had no problem, the next time I got Shingles, I was given Ultram again. I had such a horrible reaction to it, scared me to death. I had the problem w/ vertigo and nausea. I have a lot of problems w/ meds, which why I don't take pain meds. I take the barest minimum of meds I have to.
I hope you are feeling better. I agree w/ you, it is good to know the possible reactions, this way you can help yourself and the drs to get the help you need. Rest well tonight, hope tomorrow is a better day for you.
God bless. Alice.
