If you have spontaneous head, neck or jaw jerks, will you need general anesthesia for dental cleanings?
Had dnc and biopsy general anesthesia.was in recovery 10minutes and the head pain woke me up have headache every day since top of head similar to the sensation while diving in deep water or holding breath?
It is quite common:
That patient's have prolonged side effects after General since there is endotracheal intubation (which may produce a tracheitis) PLUS the effects of the drugs themselves
Get these symptoms evaluated by your Primary Care Medical Professional and NOT TO WORRY these symptoms will most likely subside with time!
Hope this helps!

Hit my head last friday, ER doc took a CT scan, said I had a concussion. Scheduled for liver biopsy tomorrow with general anesthesia. Is that okay?

For a whole day, have headache above & behind right ear. Pressing area.causes the head ache too. I did sneeze 1x or 2x but no runny nose.what cause?
Check the TM joint: The ear bone is the temporal bone and the jaw joint is the TM joint. The bone behind the ear is the mastoid process of the temporal bone. Either biomechanical forces could affect the TM joint or infection could cause the reported pain ...Read more
Never had allergies before this year. Now I sneeze alot. I get alot of runny/stuffy noses. Can menopause or age cause this or what is causing this?
Allergy at any age: Although it was once believed that allergy always starts in childhood, this is another myth in medicine not documented by studies. You can indeed become allergic at any age given that both the environment and genes are constantly evolving. ...Read more
See below: It is not unusual to have some tongue numbness after anesthesia. This occurs because the endotracheal tube that is placed to help you breathe can sometimes put pressure on the tongue. This numbness usually resolves within a few days. The facial numbness is more unusual and I would talk to the anesthesiologist who didi your case. ...Read more
Cold, usually: Often during anesthesia, your body temperature drops. When you are awakened, your body tries to warm it up any way it can, and shivering is one of those ways. Another cause can be different parts of the nervous system waking up at different times; if the parts that control shivering (and there are severals) wake up first then you shiver more and harder. Men have this issue more than women. ...Read more
Not typically: It would be unusual for numbness of the tongue to arise just from general anesthesia unless the anesthesiologist was exceptionally agressive during intubation and did significant damage in the mouth. Numbness in the face would also be very unlikely. ...Read more
See below: This should not cause problems if you did not drink to excess. I would suggest trying to keep it to a minimum, and then hydrate well for the next few days. ...Read more
Can general anesthesia cause constipation and swelling for more than 3 days after surgery! If yes, what are the remedies?
Not likely: It's extremely unlikely for General Anesthesia to cause these symptoms- but very common for opioid based pain medications to cause constipation- and nearly every general anesthetic / surgery is accompanied by opioid pain meds- though 3 days out probably not related to that either, so much as any Norco/Percocet/hydrocodone, etc. you may have been taking after surgery for pain. ...Read more
Does general anesthesia cause alopecia? If so how long would it take to occur after surgery? Mine occurred a few months after so is it possibly related
I was on shoulder stabilisation 2 months ago. Since I itch all over body+rash on both shoulders. Is it possible that its caused by general anesthesia?
Doubt it: I assume you had general anesthesia 2 months ago for the surgical procedure. I can't imagine how general anesthesia could cause a rash that persists for 2 months. (some medications given during anesthesia may cause a rash that lasts for a few minutes. These are similar to a mild allergic reaction confined to the skin and resolve quickly.). ...Read more
Either or both: General anesthesia is a state of unconsciousness and lack of reaction to painful stimuli. It can be brought on by intravenous medications such as propofol, sodium pentothal, and ketamine. Anesthesia gases (desflurane, sevoflurane) will also produce general anesthesia. Often you will receive a combination of both during surgery. ...Read more
Not really: General anesthesia sometimes involves a breathing tube or airway device that may cause numbness to the tongue but not the face. ...Read more
Do you know if there are similarities between unconsciousness caused by trauma, and unconsciousness by general anesthesia?
Not likely: General anesthesia is a reversible condition. Unconsciousness from trauma often is temporary, but the duration is unknown because the mechanism is different. Trauma causes damage to nerve transmission from sweeping and direct cell damage. Anesthetic drug effects dissipate over time. ...Read more
All of them can: Headache and nausea are common side effects of general anesthesia. They are both patient and surgery dependent. For example, young females, non-smokers with a history of motion sickness are likely to experience nausea after anesthesia. Surgery on the eye and head often triggers nausea and headache. For coffee drinkers headache may be due to caffeine withdrawal. Speak to your anesthesiologist. ...Read more
None : There are none that specifically cause headache and nausea. Some people are more sensitive to the effects of different medications. In general volatile agents (gas) can cause more nausea than intravenous medications. Some people can develop headaches with volatile agents, but others can get headaches with other medications ...Read more
Could smoking marijuana after a surgery where general anesthesia was used cause any huge issues? It's been 12 hrs since the surgery.
Depends: Smoking anything can impair the small blood vessel flow to the wound site and delay healing. It doesn't matter if you had a general or local. General anesthesia does use the lung tissue to pass the drugs of anesthesia through the cell membrane to enter the body. The gas can be irritating to these tissues. Weed uses this same method to enter your system. ...Read more
I know both are generally safe, but is intravenous safer than general anesthesia? Does intravenous cause complications if you have heart problems?
Both are the same: General anesthesia combines both intravenous and inhaled anesthetics. All anesthetics will have reversible effects on heart function. The physician anesthesiologist and other members of the anesthesia care team work jointly to ensure patient safety, especially patients with heart problems. Patients with known heart problems should discuss those issues with the Anesthesiologist before surgery ...Read more
Can I stop Prozac (fluoxetine) a few days before major surgery? I'm worried that withdrawal may affect general anesthesia or cause problems during the operation.
No reason to stop: It makes sense to keep taking medications that your system is already used to taking. Stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) might increase your anxiety, which isn't helpful when you're facing major surgery. If you need to be on a clear liquid diet prior to surgery, it still should be ok to take your medicines with a sip if water. However, stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) does not affect general anesthesia in any significant way. ...Read more
I am undergoing a colon test next week and they will be using Propofol. They used general anesthesia on me when I had a hysterectomy done and I had a lot of problems. Was it Propofol they used that caused the problems?
I'm having surgery tomorrow morning with general anesthesia and I vaporize weed concentrates every day. Will this cause complications during surgery?
You should inform: Your anesthesiologist and surgeon so they can monitor you, and titrate the dose better. ...Read more
Does generAl anesthesia cause breathlessness after becoming concious? My oxygen saturAtion was ok but I felt breathless? Why?
Muscle blockade....: With general anesthesia, neuromuscular blocking agents are often used to paralyze the muscles during the surgery. Sometimes it takes a little while for these to completely wear off. Your respiratory muscles can be affected so you are not taking real deep breaths. This can lead to the feeling of breathlessness. When the melds wear off, you feel normal again. That may be the reason for your symptoms ...Read more
Cold after surgery: Normally surgery rooms are kept quite cold and under anesthesia, as there is no movement in the body + there is exposure for surgery etc, the body temperature drops and patients get cold after the surgery esp in extremities. Most modern operation rooms do have warm air covers over patients to maintain normal body temperature + they also use heated IV fluids and humidified anesthetic gases ...Read more
