Fibromyalgia Q & A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a prevalent chronic pain condition that causes pain and tenderness throughout your body. Your pain may come and go and range in severity. It may also affect your entire body or migrate from your head to your feet.

In addition to physical pain, fibromyalgia causes other disruptive symptoms including:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Memory issues and other cognitive problems
  • Mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Irritable bladder
  • Gastrointestinal problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)


Fibromyalgia affects more women than men and usually develops in early adulthood. There’s no known cure for the condition, but with effective medical care, you can manage your symptoms and lead a full and active life.


How is fibromyalgia treated?

Fibromyalgia is challenging to diagnose and treat because of the changeable nature of your symptoms. At Rise Wellness Centers, the team of doctors and medical staff take your symptoms seriously and work with you to develop a treatment plan including ketamine infusion therapy to resolve your pain and other symptoms.


What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine is a powerful FDA-approved anesthetic. The team at Rise Wellness Centers provides ketamine infusions, which is an IV drip of a diluted ketamine solution. Ketamine interacts with your brain chemistry and inhibits the NMDA receptors that contribute to your mental health and the way your brain interprets pain.

The team at Rise Wellness Center have seen their patients’ quality of life improve significantly with ketamine infusions. Patients report decreased pain, stiffness and mobility problems as well as improved sleep, reduced reliance on other medications, and enhanced emotional stability and general outlook.


What should I expect during ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a relaxing 60-minute treatment in which you sit comfortably as your doctor places your IV to deliver your infusion.

As you rest, the ketamine infusion enters your bloodstream directly. You may feel a floating or tingling sensation, but any side effects subside soon after your infusion is complete.

You may notice a reduction in your symptoms immediately. However, your doctor may suggest a series of treatments for optimal results.
