Re: worried about starting fentanyl patch

I have just started the fentanyl patch today - I am 29 also. I have had 3 back surgeries (one spinal fusion) - For the first 6 hours I didn't feel any side effects but I didn't have hardly any pain. Now I am at hour 14 and I have fears. I am not sure if it is anxiety or what it is - I contemplated taking it off so I could calm down and go to sleep but I have had such terrible pain for so many years and am wondering if this is just a temporary symptom until my body becomes use to it? Before I was taking 30 mg vicodin/day my patch is 25mcg the brand is Sandoz. I literally can't sleep and my heartbeat isn't necessarily irregular but is fairly fast for a resting state - any quick advise from anyone would be great. Has anyone experienced this and what did you do?
