What Are The Symptoms of Neuropathic Pain?

For many, neuropathic pain can hinder one’s ability to perform daily activities. The symptoms of neuropathic pain include:

  • Gradual onset of numbness, prickling, or tingling in your feet or hands, which can spread upward into your legs and arms
  • Sharp, jabbing, throbbing, or burning pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Paralysis if motor nerves are affected
  • Pain during activities that shouldn’t cause pain, such as pain in your feet when putting weight on them or when they’re under a blanket
  • Lack of coordination and falling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Feeling as if you’re wearing gloves or socks when you’re not

Why Ketamine for Neuropathic Pain?

There are typically two types of individuals with chronic pain who might take advantage of this treatment: patients with chronic pain that have not had much progress with other pain medicines or treatment methods, or people with chronic pain who plan to have surgery.

The most significant advantage for most individuals who choose to use ketamine infusions for their chronic pain is the diminishment of their chronic pain. Ketamine infusions are frequently used for patients that have found that other treatment pain management options have not benefited them. For some patients, ketamine infusion therapy can enable them to live a satisfied, pain-free, or pain-reduced life.

The procedure itself is almost pain-free for the patient compared to other pain management solutions. There is no surgery associated with the process. This can be wonderful for neuropathic pain patients who have tried medicine, therapy, or surgical treatment without any success, or those who are uneasy about having a surgical procedure.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat Neuropathic Pain?

It is believed that the leading 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.

Are There Any Adverse Effects of Ketamine?

As a new treatment option for neuropathic pain, ketamine has a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, double or blurred vision, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and slight anxiety feelings after being given a dose. This treatment method is not developmental because this is an FDA-approved drug utilized for “off-label” or less typical use.

An “off-label” use indicates that it offers a treatment that the FDA did not initially authorize. The FDA approves prescription medications only for specific uses, but most medications at some point develop off-label uses as a result of the clinical experience that develops in time.

As a good example, the medication Prazosin’s purpose was to treat hypertension in 1976. Still, it is now mainly used to treat nightmares in individuals with PTSD, a use not initially approved.

Where Will I Receive My Ketamine Infusions?

We strive to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their private rooms during treatment.

A number of our clients refer to a “dissociation” effect. This disconnection effect aids your treatment and delivers a positive response to your ketamine therapy for many patients.

This is all an ordinary component of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team to monitor you and be readily available to you during your infusion.

Is Ketamine Treatment the Right Solution for You?

Are you ready to take back control of your life? Are you tired of trying one medication after the other to only be left with those same feelings of pain and discomfort? Then ketamine infusions might be an excellent option for you.
