What is FMS?
Did you know that fibromyalgia is one of the leading causes of pain? If you are affected by this condition know that you are not alone. Fibromyalgia is the leading cause of chronic pain affecting millions of Americans. It is a condition that affects nearly 10 million Americans, causing pain all over the body. It does not cause just pain but also sleep problems, fatigue, and emotional distress. It is a neurological issue that is attributed to the abnormal perception of pain and the overstimulation of NMDA receptors. Therapies used to treat fibromyalgia can give certain results, but bring with them a number of serious side effects. If you are looking for an alternative and above all an efficient solution, ketamine infusions may be right for you.
The use of ketamine displayed a notable reduction in pain intensity in fibromyalgia patients. In small, controlled doses, it can help lessen the discomfort you’re experiencing, and can even help you feel calm and relaxed. By blocking NMDA receptors Ketamine stops these receptors from receiving signals of pain. Ketamine also increases the concentration of glutamate in the prefrontal cortex, an area where fibromyalgia patients may lack sufficient concentrations of this excitatory neurotransmitter. In addition, ketamine is increasing the concentration of dopamine in the brain, permitting sustained pain relief enduring upwards of a month.
Since ketamine treatment is relatively new, the procedure must be performed by qualified and experienced doctors. That’s exactly what you get at Loop Medical Center. Before administering ketamine therapy, each client undergoes a detailed medical examination to determine that it is safe to receive this therapy. Numerous studies indicate that more than half of participants endorsed at least a 50% decrease in their pain levels after IV infusions of Ketamine.
