Many people experience side effects following general anesthesia. These side effects typically appear within a few hours after the surgery or operation and resolve themselves on their own. People report feeling dehydrated and nauseous, sometimes feeling like they had been drinking the night before. They also claim to have headaches and pain in their muscles or joints. There are also some individuals who have a sore throat. These side effects are generally similar to the symptoms of the cold or flu.

Was it general anesthesia?
