Treating Fibromyalgia with Ketamine

What is Fibromyalgia?

According to WebMD, Fibromyalgia is the second most pervasive of all conditions that impact a person’s bones and muscles. Unfortunately, there is no known cure when it comes to Fibromyalgia and current treatments typically consist of medication, exercise, healthy habits, and managing of symptoms. Many patients report that, in addition to extreme pain and discomfort, they also experience insomnia, fatigue, depression, and anxiety when battling Fibromyalgia. 

Fortunately, many patients have begun reporting tremendous relief for their Fibromyalgia through the use of IV Ketamine therapy in Florida. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and are looking for a new treatment, contact an experienced Ketamine Doctor in Florida today!

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine, an FDA-approved drug for general anesthesia, has been shown in off-label trials to provide significant antidepressant benefits to patients utilizing Ketamine IV Therapy. This therapy uses doses lower than those used in anesthesia infused over 50 minutes to provide the potential for lasting improvement of depressive symptoms. If you believe Ketamine therapy may help you or a loved one, contact a Florida Ketamine doctor today!

 

How can Ketamine help Treat Fibromyalgia?

Despite being utilized as an anesthetic for quite some time, research is revealing that, in small doses, Ketamine has tremendous relaxing properties to assist in a variety of pain-related ailments, including Fibromyalgia. Unlike traditional treatments, Ketamine acts to block NMDA receptors which, in turn, greatly weaken and diminish pain signals sent throughout one’s body. Ketamine works to block these receptors in an effort to not only cut down on the pain experienced by the patient, but also has been reported to have tremendous mental-health benefits, including reduced anxiety, increased relaxation, and a better ability to get quality sleep. 

 

Most antiinflammatory medications or other traditional treatments of Fibromyalgia often take longer periods of time to provide relief, whereas relief from Ketamine treatments is reported to be far more rapid. Furthermore, treating fibromyalgia with ketamine over a period of time can further alter the NMDA receptors, leading to a reported decrease in overall pain and neuropathy over a longer period of time than traditional treatments.
