KureIV Offers the Best Ketamine Infusions for Fibromyalgia Treatment in Houston, TX
With traditional fibromyalgia treatments, it can sometimes take weeks or even months before symptom relief is experienced. Ketamine is an inspiring treatment option because in some cases it can provide relief from symptoms within days or even hours.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that is noted for widespread pain and fatigue with no apparent underlying cause. Symptoms often begin appearing, but not exclusively after, an injury or physical trauma.
The primary symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
- Widespread pain: The pain associated with fibromyalgia often is described as a constant dull ache that has lasted for at least three months. To be considered widespread, the pain must occur on both sides of your body and above and below your waist.
- Fatigue: People with fibromyalgia often awaken tired, even though they report sleeping for long periods of time. Sleep is often disrupted by pain, and many patients with fibromyalgia have other sleep disorders, such as restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea.
- Cognitive difficulties: A symptom commonly referred to as “fibro fog” impairs the ability to focus, pay attention and concentrate on mental tasks.
How Does Ketamine Help Treat Fibromyalgia Symptoms?
It is believed that the main cause of chronic pain is due to overactivity of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in the brain. Ketamine helps the condition by attaching to the NMDA receptor and blocking it from being activated by glutamate, a neurotransmitter, thereby helping to mute the effects of chronic pain symptoms.
By connecting to those receptors, ketamine may be able to amplify the number of glutamate neurotransmitters in the empty space between neurons.
Glutamate then interacts with the AMPA receptors. Together, these receptors bring about the discharge of multiple molecules that boost the brain’s neuroplasticity — essentially, ketamine infusions allow the brain to reset and restore important nerve connections.
