Reda head gene & pain management

So apparently i'm just enough red headed that I don't respond well to local & general anethstetics... 

Any one else have similar issues with not being fully numb or still feeling pain with surgery?  

My first was born with emergency c-section and they had to keep adding to the epidural during surgery because I could feel pain.  Needless to say i'm having a lot of anxiety about another c-section. I have two options try for vbac and hope for the best with the epidural if I need another c-section or schedule a c-section and try a spinal. 
Would love any advice on dealing with PTSD/ anxiety and experiences from other red heads with similar issues.
