If I offend anyone I apologize but we have some of the dumbest people in the medical profession. Just because you had not had morphine for a couple of hours does not mean you were not still reacting to what you had already taken. My allergist says It takes up to 72 hours to clear something from our body & you may feel bad even longer. I'm still recovering from an allergic reaction to a med I took yesterday. I still feel so bad I can hardly sit up. Listen to your body.
