What Causes Fibromyalgia Pain?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that causes widespread pain. The cause of fibromyalgia isn't fully understood, but it appears to be related to the body's sensitivity and overactivity of muscles throughout much or all parts thereof.


Risk Factors for Developing Fibromyalgia Pain

Several factors have been associated with an increased risk of developing fibromyalgia syndrome. These include:

  • family history (genetics), certain genetic mutations in the brain affecting the normal functioning of the chemicals in the brain (Neurotransmitters)
  • stressful life events like death, divorce, or any traumatic incident in childhood;
  • physical trauma such as injury from an accident that caused pain requiring medical attention before the age of 20 years old--could be due to both minor constraints on movement like tight muscles causing breathing difficulties when exercising hard enough.
  • A rheumatoid arthritis patient is likely to develop fibromyalgia with time.
  • Women are generally at a higher risk to develop Fibromyalgia symptoms depending on the factor that their heel areas are generally more prone to bear the pain, trauma, or physical tension. Hence, female fibromyalgia patients are usually more reported in the United States of America to suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms than men.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can be difficult to detect. They may not present themselves in any one place, but rather through your whole body including head senses like vision or hearing loss as well physical ones such as sore throat and fatigue which are often accompanied by chronic pain on top of all this without even realizing why!

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can be extremely painful and disruptive and the symptom severity varies from individual to individual depending upon certain factors. The common symptoms include;

  • chronic pain disorders: widespread chronic musculoskeletal pain, chronic fatigue, and soreness throughout your body.
  • difficulty sleeping due to restless legs or stiffness during waking hours that makes it difficult even for a mild activity like getting out of bed in the morning.
  • major depression (severe major depressive disorder) is also common with this condition because there's no way you'll feel better unless these physical ailments begin feeling more manageable on their own - but unfortunately, they don't!
  • The pain signals in the brain lead to headaches, migraine, anxiety, and concentration issues.

Fibromyalgia is a condition in which many people experience muscle pain, diarrhea, and other symptoms. People with this disorder often feel better when they're stationary or sleeping on the couch all day long!

How do Ketamine Infusions Help Fibromyalgia?

Ketamine has shown to alleviate pain associated with fibromyalgia and improve mood in those who suffer from conditions like depression or chronic anxiety. It does this by acting on receptors located all over the brain, especially the pain-related brain regions, diminishing the pain response of the brain and ultimately giving the patients with fibromyalgia relief from pain and discomfort.

Ketamine is a non-competitive agonist at the NMDA (N Methyl D Aspartate) receptor and inhibits transmitter release in the spinal cord. This therapy has shown to relieve pain by inhibiting the transmission of signals between nerves via neurotransmitters like substance P or norepinephrine that are responsible for producing continuous muscle contractions associated with fibromyalgia symptoms.

Thus, IV Ketamine therapy causes rapid and profound changes to the Central neurons that control body movements. This pain therapy causes a significant reduction in pain and agony, and allows patients with fibromyalgia more freedom from their chronic discomfort, allowing them a better quality of life overall.
