Ok..in a nutshell i have a renal disease and ureteral stent in place. The stent caused stones to form in my kidney. I had two lithrotripsies performed but there are still some very large stones. My urologist thinks the best thing to do is go in percontaneously through my flank and remove them. Due to circumstances in my life ( dh is deployed, im in medic school, i dont agree with my in laws parenting..so i have to wait for my mom to return from p.r.) im not having the procedure done until next month. Because of the pain im in he gave me oxycodone. Its a low dose, directed to take one or two every four hrs. I only take it at night after my kids are in bed and it hurts to lay down. Typically people that take analgesics like this will get low bp..lowered heart rate..drowsiness. However, i feel jittery and on edge. I cant stay still. My bp is normal.. but my heart rate is slightly elevated. The pain does subside, but i can't relax to go to sleep. Would you consider this an adverse reaction? Possibly a mild allergic reaction? Should i consult with my urologist and ask for something different? Even if my symptoms are not typical, have any of you experienced this on this medication?
