This is a new one for me: I vomited twice tonight after a bad migraine had already basically ended. Has anyone else had this happen? I vomit very occassionally DURING a migraine, but never in a decade of migraines have I vomited afterwards. I'm wondering if it is related to my migraine meds.

For the last 6 weeks I have been taking 30mg nortriptyline/daily to prevent migraines. Today I took tramadol for migraine pain relief at 9am, again at 6pm, headache seemed to be basically gone by 1am and I threw up ~1:30am and again at 3am. The tramadol says that I can take it every 6 hours, but today was the first time that I took it more than once in the same day.

Has anyone else vomited after a migraine? Or have experience with tramadol causing vomiting hours after being taken?

I thought that I had already experienced practically every possible migraine symptom, so this new one freaks me out.

Since I am very MCS (multiple chemical sensitive) I cannot take most meds without feeling sick. My whole life I suffered from headaches with the pain always starting in my eyes. Eventually I would get dizzy and vomit. I always needed a lot of sleep and would literally shut down at night when I reached my bewitching hour. I always felt a little foggy headed and as time went on I developed arthritis all over and Asthma. At one point I was misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia.

I finally hit bottom when my shortness of breath, Asthma, wasnt being helped by the prednisone, my migraines were several times a week and I had bursitis in my hip along with other aches and pains. My Drs. were no help, and I felt like I was gonna die.

I was lucky enough to know that I was allergic to aspirin. Aspirin is a Salicylate, it comes from the bark of the Willow tree. All plants produce salicylates as natural insecticides.

So I looked up "Foods containing Salicylates". I couldnt believe that it was in all fruits except bananas, peeled pears, and papaya. Its in most vegetables except string beans, peas, lettuce, cabbage, brussel sprouts and celery. Salicylates are real HIGH in Tomatos sauce, broccoli, cucumbers, coffee, tea, Olive oil, oregano, pepprika, hot sauce, vinegar, and many other things that come from plants.

I immediately gave up foods in the Moderate to Very High Column and 2 days later I was all better. My migraines were gone, my Arthritis is gone and my breathing improved 100%.
Most people with migraines are Salicylate Intolerant. More information about this food intolerance, the symptoms ,the Foods to eat and avoid and some recipes can be found in a book called,
"Salicylate Intolerance and The Healthier I Ate the Sicker I Got.

You are not a hypchondriac, you are not crazy, and you are not alone. There are so many people with Salicylate Intolerance with the exact same symptoms as you. Migraines are very typical, most kids with ADHD have it and 80% of Autistic kids have it too. Well I could go on and on but I hope this helps and you can get more info if you google, sick from salicylates. Take care, Joan
