No: Opioids do not have any known anti-inflammatory effects. Tramadol is a different chemical and is unrelated to the opiate chemical structure and "allergy" to it (don't know what your reaction is, but most adverse drug reactions are not truly allergic) would not mean you would have a problem with hydrocodone or other opiates.
