What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory issues, and mood imbalances. This condition affects how the brain processes pain signals, amplifying painful sensations and causing discomfort throughout the body.

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Widespread pain (affecting multiple areas of the body for no less than three months)
  • Fatigue (feeling tired, even after sleep)
  • Sleep disturbances (poor sleep quality)
  • Cognitive difficulties (“fibro fog,” which is problems with memory and thinking clearly)
  • Mood disorders (e.g., anxiety and depression)

Fibromyalgia can also cause other symptoms like headaches, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and heightened sensitivity to light, noise, or temperature changes.

What causes fibromyalgia?

The cause of fibromyalgia isn’t entirely known, but it’s likely a mix of factors, such as changes in how the brain and spine handle pain signals, genetic influences from family history, and triggers like physical injuries, infections, or severe stress. 

No matter its cause, the condition can be managed with effective treatment.

How can my fibromyalgia be treated?

At Dreamscape Ketamine and Wellness, ketamine treatment approaches for fibromyalgia manage symptoms and improve quality of life. They include:
