I was on a binge diet of basically lemons and cayenne pepper, abdominal pain while running, still there, around right upper abdomen. Stomach ulcer?

I was on a binge diet of basically lemons and cayenne pepper, abdominal pain while running, still there, around right upper abdomen. Stomach ulcer?

See your Doctor: Finding out the cause of abdominal pain is like solving a mystery: we collect clues from one's symptoms, history, examination+/- tests. Therefore, a "hands-on" eval is critical. In general, pain related to activity is usually more related to the abdominal wall (muscles) rather than the internal organs. Regardless, I am sure I don't need to tell you that a binge diet of pepper and lemon is baad!

Can any doctor offten to a person that takes omeprazol (for inhibiting stomach ulcer), tramadol that has 10mg hcl?

Can any doctor offten to a person that takes omeprazol (for inhibiting stomach ulcer), tramadol that has 10mg hcl?

Hydrochloride: Most medications exist in a "salt" form and HCl salt is the therapeutic form of tramadol. It is made so that it can have a therapeutic pH for its intended function. It will not be harmful to the stomach as it is. You should not combine it with an anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprfen when there are stomach symptoms. I hope this clarifies your doubts.
