Ketamine: A Solution for Fibromyalgia21st November 2017
For the last decade, millions of people have finally been given a diagnosis for their chronic, widespread pain: Fibromyalgia. This condition has baffled the medical field for many years, as there is often not a clear reason behind the pain in many patients. Because most patients suffer from widespread pain, it often cannot be associated with a specific injury or trigger. Patients may suffer from chronic headaches, burning sensations in their hands, irritable bowel syndrome, and cramps in their feet all at the same time – leading doctors to believe that these symptoms are not related. Yet, with fibromyalgia, they are.
Because fibromyalgia often appears dissociated in symptoms, doctors tend to want to treat the “separate conditions” instead of treating the patient as a whole. This often leads patients to suffer through their condition because treating one symptom is not helping with all of the others.
There is no known cure for fibromyalgia, yet one treatment is on the rise for its success in treating multiple symptoms. Ketamine treatment for pain is being used to successfully treat patients with fibromyalgia who have waited years for beneficial treatments. Doctors across the United States are witnessing patients who have been suffering for 25+ years find relief. Patients’ pain levels are being dramatically reduced and their quality of life is literally being handed back to them.
Intravenous ketamine blocks receptors in the brain that are responsible for releasing chemicals that cause inflammation to the nervous system that, in turn, can cause fibromyalgia pain symptoms. Dr. David Mahjoubi has eleven years of experience with intravenous Ketamine, and he has done extensive research regarding IV Ketamine and its benefits for people with Major Depression and Chronic Pain. Working with surgical centers throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, Dr. Mahjoubi is a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology, and he is committed to helping patients gain a higher quality of life.
