Help / Advice Forum: AWESOME POST in "Weird Reaction to Oxycodone", by XaRiOuS
Your not alone! About 3 months ago i started feeling like crap every time i took myoral morphine so i had my doc switch me to Oxycontin then the rollercoaster ride of weird shit started happening! I had already been feeling aweful from the morphine so i figured it was a bad reaction so i switched as stated above. Things seemed better at 1st then had a attack that made me feel like i was dying an had horrible gallbladder pain right below my right rib an came down with a sinus infection causing partial loss of taste, partial loss of smell, ringing/pressure in ears, headache deep in the back of my head (Near brain stem) an felt just terrible! I switched to snorting the oxys (Please hear me out lol) an the headache has gotten better but still get bad ringing ing my ears when snorting the oxy an get pain in my gallbladder also. I have did alot of reading an the only thing i can come up with is that the CCK-Receptor which is responsible for making CCK (The hormone your body makes when a high fat meal is ate that tells your gallbladder to contract an empty the bile thats stored) is near the mu, delta, & kappa opioid receptors (Receptors that are responsible for the euphoric effects from opioids) an is interfering with them due to the gallbladder being diseased. One reason i believe its somewhat related is because i haven't had a buzz from an opiate since i had that weird attack 3 months ago. Now i'm just stuck snorting enough to stay outta withdrawal! I know i'm an addict so please no comments about how drugs are bad! I was on an antibiotic at the time for an infection so maybe the antibiotic an opioids have an bad reaction in people with gallbladder problems?? When i got an HIDA Scan done yesterday the ringing in my ears, weird heat sensation, nausea/discomfort near gallbladder increased when they injected the CCK to make the gallbladder empty. Was you on any antibiotic before or during when you took the percs?? Did the sinus infection come back post-cholecystectomy?? It's nice to know i'm not crazy lol...just an addict who can't get high!
