What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition marked by chronic musculoskeletal pain often described as a persistent dull ache, as well as fatigue, disrupted sleep, concentration and memory difficulties, and mood issues. The National Institutes of Health reports 80-90% of fibromyalgia sufferers are women, mostly middle aged. The chronic, debilitating pain of fibromyalgia is often compared to arthritis, although there is no damage to joints or tissues.
Does ketamine for fibromyalgia work?
Yes, and clinical findings are backed by research results. Ketamine is a well studied and widely used general anesthetic for humans. It has a proven record for safety, is not addictive or habit forming and is on the World Health Organization Model List of Essential Medicines. Dosages used for ketamine infusions are much smaller than traditional hospital use.
A recent study by the National Institutes of Health concluded, “There is evidence that long term treatment of chronic pain (particularly in pain with a neuropathic component) with ketamine will cause prolonged pain relief…” Particularly for patients with severe chronic pain that has resisted other pain treatment methods, ketamine fibromyalgia treatment offers a very promising potential solution.
Can ketamine infusion treatment for fibromyalgia help me?
Ketamine is changing lives for patients suffering from fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), chronic back pain, depression, and other conditions. Ketamine infusion may be an option to treat your pain. An initial visit for a fibromyalgia diagnosis and evaluation will determine if ketamine infusion is right for you.
