    Default Anesthesia and Stiff Person Syndrome

    There have been cases of patients with SPS who develop Locked in Syndrome with certain anesthetics, not with all.

    If you’re due for any anesthetic, be sure your Neuro and the anesthesiologist or dentist know about Stiff Person Syndrome ahead of time.

    I did this recently for an endoscopy dome to see why I had swallowing problems. I sure wanted the doc to know what she was looking at if I couldn’t move upon awakening.

    Conversely, with Propofol , for colonoscopy, I woke up and my Neuro symptoms were gone for @12 hours! It was wonderful to feel healthy! Was dancing around the kitchen.

    If you have SPS, have you had such experiences?
