Fibromyalgia is often misunderstood. It is characterized by musculoskeletal pain, but there is no visible cause. It is also not just about pain. The condition often brings with it additional symptoms, including mood changes, fatigue, an inability to sleep, memory loss, and more. Current research on the condition has found that the disease amplifies painful sensations by altering how pain and non-pain signals are processed in the spinal cord and brain.
Treating fibromyalgia can include pain relievers, antidepressants, and anti-seizure drugs, as well as counseling, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. However, for all those options, sufferers are often left in pain and dealing with unwanted, challenging side effects. Ketamine therapy can offer a dramatic difference by alleviating pain and even addressing other symptoms.
The number of ketamine infusions needed for Fibromyalgia varies widely among individuals. It’s dependent upon several factors, including the severity of symptoms, individual response to the treatment, and overall health conditions. Some may experience relief after a few sessions, while others may require a more extensive series of infusions to manage the symptoms effectively. Personalized assessment and a tailored treatment plan are crucial to determine the optimal number of infusions, ensuring each individual receives the most beneficial and lasting relief possible. Understanding the unique medical landscape of each patient is essential in prescribing the right frequency and dosage of ketamine infusions to alleviate Fibromyalgia symptoms effectively.
