Tramadol is known to have GI side effects including heart burn, indigestion, constipation and/or diarrhea. So, while it's likely that the medication is causing your discomfort it's hard to tell exactly what the pain is coming from. It would be a good idea to discuss this symptom with your doctor so that you can come up with a plan to address both your pain and stomach issues.
