Just a bug in your ear that might save you some additional misery. I've had 3 (fairly knowlegable) doctors tell me that if I have surgery, a car accident, etc. to tell the E.R. NOT to use morphine on me. They said morphine has a vaso dialative action which is exactly what you DON'T want (it could trigger a CH if you don't already have one). I personally have nothing against pain meds if the situation warrants it, but ask if they can use something else. Just thought I'd pass that along.
