How Does Ketamine for Neuropathic Pain Work?
Ketamine is a medication that causes significant pain reduction much faster than traditional treatment options. It works by blocking the NMDA receptor, which is overstimulated in neuropathic pain syndromes and opioid medications have been shown to exaggerate it. Ketamine “resets” this nerve pathway back to normal causing major relief for patients suffering from chronic or acute neuralgia as well as post-operative migrainous headache.s Ketamine also blocks norepinephrine, which is responsible for sensitizing the nerves that contribute to neuropathic pain.
What Is Neuropathic Pain Exactly?
Neuropathic pain is when the nerves and nerve endings become affected by a painful stimulus inappropriately and can occur because of injury or inflammation. The original stimulus can also be caused by other factors such as a disease like diabetes, infection, tumor, or back problems. Of course, these are not limited to injuries; neuropathic pain can happen anywhere.
What Are The Symptoms of Neuropathic Pain?
The symptoms of neuropathic pain vary from person to person. Signs that you may have neuropathic pain are varied but might include burning sensations in your limbs after an activity such as climbing stairs, numbness in your extremities, recurring tingling on the skin of your hands from any touch even light pressure against it for minutes at a time (pins and needles), painful night cramps (called nocturnal leg cramps) that startle you awake, muscles that are tight and sore (called muscle spasms), shooting pain in the legs or arms as if you were being hit by a mild electric shock and muscle spasms that make moving your limbs nearly impossible.
How Is Neuropathic Pain Diagnosed?
Your healthcare provider will take a medical history and do a physical exam. If your provider knows or suspects you have nerve injury, they may be able to recognize typical neuropathic pain symptoms such as tingling in the hands and feet during the examination of various nerves. Your doctor might work with other specialists if needed for diagnosis and treatment options are available that can help control these types of uncomfortable side effects from long-term treatments like chemotherapy drugs.
