My doctor kept me overnight after my day-surgery hysterectomy because she was worried about me having reaction to anesthesia / pain medication r/t PTSD. Didn't know this was something I needed to worry about (she didn't see I had PTSD till anesthesia pointed it out). Otherwise I was ready to go home (actually less pain than when I walked in - yea surgery was needed). Kinda glad later that she kept me because I started throwing up about 0200 the next AM.

Is it common for someone with PTSD to have poor reactions to anesthesia or pain medications?

My husband has been diagnosed with epilepsy , frontal lobe seizures - abscence seizures and has been having major bouts of dizziness, vertigo and has a continual buzzing noise in his head. Medication has not helped him with these symptoms and I wondered if there is anything we can do to help him deal with these issues.

I am a 34 year old female, with episodes of chronic migraine headaches which present themselves with an onset of what seems to be an epileptic seizure in my abdominals. The stomach involuntarily contracts for a period of 30 to 45 seconds, subsides for a few minutes, and then occurs again until vomiting results. The following day or two I have symptoms of a migraine headaches, vomiting for 12 ro 24 hours, followed by nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and in one instance I had an episode where I could not speak or write. My doctor thinks I have abnormal migraines, however, the symptoms occur three days prior to my menses- and when I am under a great deal of stress. I have been experiencing these abdominal migraines or abdominal epileptic seizures- which ever they are called- for a period of 23 years approximately every cycle. They get worse if I eat dairy, yellow cheese, meat, wheat, sugar, onions, and too much chocolate, or smell chemicals, diesel fuel, or bleach. I have received an endoscopy which came back normal, I was tested for Celiacs disease, and that came back normal. I feel frustrated because I cannot get a definitive answer about this condition. I just want an answer about this condition which with my current insurance, I cannot get the tests necessary to diagnose whatever I have. I would be happy to volunteer for a medical study for Abdominal Epilepsy or Migraines if it could lead to a diagnosis. I think this could help me to lead a more normal life, and possibly treatment for this condition. What is your advice for me, considering this has effected every aspect of my life, family, career and health.

During a session at the tattoo parlor i had a grand mal seizure where my eyes rolled into the back of my head and my leg muscles contracted and released twice. The whole episode lasted 20-30 secs. Immediately before I lost awareness my stomach felt empty and i felt light headed. I've had that feeling twice before over the last year and a half when I working out in the morning but did not have a loss of awareness or muscle control those times. I've had a headache for 3 days since and have had headaches 3-4 times a week for several weeks before it happened. The headaches are not severe, just a dull pain. Two uncles and my grand father had epilepsy but it was brought on by head trauma. Is it possible that it was a diabetic seizure since every time I have felt like that it during something that put stress on my body and I had little or nothing to eat? Or is it likely that it was epilepsy or something else? Should I hurry and get a appointment with my doctor?
