Understanding Fibromyalgia

I’m always on the lookout for articles or research studies that help explain neuropathic pain disorders. The general public has a difficult time comprehending pain without physical injury. Even medical professionals of all levels can have difficulty accepting a pain that cannot be diagnosed and treated through conventional methods. Fibromyalgia is one of several neuropathic pain disorders in which the brain is perceiving pain or injury where there is none. Pain is defined as the PERCEPTION of noxious stimuli. Therefore the perceived pain with fibromyalgia is no less real than the pain of a burn injury or broken bone. The brain doesn’t know the difference. Ketamine infusion therapy causes neuroregeneration of the damaged or defective neurons that are perceiving pain associated with fibromyalgia. Check out this article from Very Well Health that explains this neuropathic pain disorder in a clear concise manner. https://www.verywellhealth.com/a-simple-explanation-of-fibromyalgia-716142
