Hello...I am 11 days post L4/L5 MicroD, and am taking Neurontin, Percocet & Advil for pain (which is still much worse than pre-op btw). Anyway, I've noticed the past couple nights when laying in bed I have this weird sensation as though there is pressure building in my upper torso and head, and then it subsides for a few seconds, and then it comes back, etc., in cycles. It's very strange and wakes me up in a panic b/c I think I am having a heart-attack or stroke or something, but then it goes away. I'm thinking it's blood pressure related, but don't know which medication would make my blood pressure go haywire like that? I'm also starting to get itchy. No rash, just itchy. Probably the percocet (oxycodone).
Anyone else have this experience? I'm going back for my 2 week follow-up tomorrow with the NP and will mention it.
