I had another attack of whatever last night, and I spent a couple of hours trying to get through it without taking painkillers. (Mostly because one possible side effect of Percocet is… pancreatitis!)
But the pain was pretty bad, so I finally took one. Guess what? Worked like a charm. It didn’t make me feel all woozy, either — it just made the pain go away, and I got a full night’s sleep. I’m a little headache-y from the drug, but other than that, yay!
