What Are The Symptoms of CRPS?

(CRPS) is a chronic pain condition that typically hinders a leg or arm. CRPS in most cases forms after a personal injury, a stroke, a heart attack, or surgical treatment. The discomfort is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CRPS INCLUDE:
  • Continuous burning or throbbing pain, usually in the arm, leg, hand, or foot
  • Sensitivity to touch or cold
  • Swelling of the painful area
  • Changes in skin temperature — alternating between sweaty and cold
  • Changes in skin color, ranging from white and blotchy to red or blue
  • Changes in skin texture, which may become tender, thin, or shiny in the affected area
  • Changes in hair and nail growth
  • Joint stiffness, swelling, and damage
  • Muscle spasms, tremors, and weakness (atrophy)
  • Decreased ability to move the affected body part

 

Signs and symptoms may alter in time and differ for each individual. Pain, inflammation, redness, obvious shifts in temperature and hypersensitivity (particularly to cold and touch) typically take place, to begin with.

How Does Ketamine Help With CRPS?

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 CRPS 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.

The Ketamine Infusion Experience

During treatment, we go above and beyond to make sure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their own private rooms. Infusions typically last 45-60 minutes for mood disorders, while chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia require a larger dose and can take up to several hours to complete.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociative” effect, and most of our patients respond positively to this sensation. In many cases, this disassociation effect is what aids with your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy.

These are all ordinary components of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team there to monitor you and be readily available during your infusion.

What Are The Side Effects of Ketamine Treatment?

As a new treatment option for CRPS, ketamine does have a few minor side effects. These can include a dream-like feeling, disrupted vision, lightheadedness, nausea, or some slight anxious feelings after treatment.

Ketamine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in “off-label” use for infusion therapy. Off-label use indicates that it is 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 with time.

Thank you so much for your time and compassion toward me. You have given me my life back after 7 years. There are no words to say how thankful I am. Thank you!
