Have intermittent brown spotting, had epidural and anaphylactic shock. Related?

I am 40 yers old with a typical cycle of 28-30 days. Two weeks ago I was at a 32 day cycle with light spotting that evening, nothing the next day and intermitant spotting with old blood the last 3 days. It has been 13 dys now and still occasional brown spotting, mainly internally. I did have an epidural 4 weeks ago and went into anaphylactic shock twice in one day 3 days ago. Pregnant test says not pregnant however in my last pregnancy lasting 22 weeks, the test said negative at 6 weeks. Is it possible the shock from epidural and epinephrines caused the spotting and no real period? My estrodial level is at 55 and FSH is typically high at 12.5.

An epidural will not be the cause of these problems. Also it is unlikely to be the cause of anaphylactic shock.
