How Ketamine Therapy Helps People With Fibromyalgia in Louisiana

Fibromyalgia causes fatigue, musculoskeletal pain throughout the body, and emotional and mental stress. Around 2% of adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. However, the exact reason for this disorder is still unknown. Patients experience pain symptoms on the meeting points of muscles, tendons, cognitive difficulties, and fatigue. Other common symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Stiffness
  • IBS
  • Depression

Fibromyalgia currently affects approximately 12 million Americans. Women between 20 and 50 years of age have a higher tendency of developing this. It is a challenging disorder to deal with, ruining the daily lifestyle of suffering. 

Ketamine immediately blocks NMDA receptors. It is the most significant antagonist for NMDA receptors that are clinically available today. By blocking NMDA receptors, ketamine therapy resets pain receptors that are hypersensitized in people suffering from fibromyalgia disorder.

Ketamine also inhibits the activity of the default mode network (DMN) in the brain, parts of the brain that are conscious when the mind is at rest, e.g., daydreaming. Hyperconnectivity of the DMN is also connected to rumination in chronic pain and depression.

The number and frequency of ketamine treatments vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the condition, the other conventional medicines patients may be taking, and the patient response to these treatments. Patients can see ketamine results in just a week and only in one session, unlike traditional treatment methods that take months to reduce symptoms. 

Chronic pain caused by fibromyalgia is hard to understand. Explaining the problem to those who don’t have fibromyalgia is even more difficult. We are here to assist you with fibromyalgia pain, and we hope to help you with your journey towards peace and relief.
