I have pain in my head due to stress and anxiety.  I have been given a narcotic pain reliever for this purpose. My issue is that the side effects of this pain medication are:

Drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, sedation, vomiting  

I do experience them all except nausea and vomiting.  Sometimes I wonder if the side effect is worth it or should I just suffer the pain?

Right now as I write this, I’m dizzy and not fully alert, but I’m feeling no pain.  Granted I only take this drug when the pain is annoying and bad enough that I can’t function, but dang!
