Ketamine for Migraine Treatment

One billion people worldwide deal with migraines (39 million in the US alone), making it the third most common illness in the world.

Migraines are a severe form of headache that can cause severe throbbing, usually on one side of the head. Symptoms often include nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can last hours or even days and be so intense that they begin to affect one’s personal life.

At Mind Balance, we understand how debilitating this condition can be. We believe that understanding a condition is the first step towards healing, so keep reading to learn more.

Pain

Pain

Migraines are a type of headache that causes great, debilitating pain. Oftentimes, the pain collects on one side of the head or focuses behind one eye. During a migraine, one may find that they have a great sensitivity to light that can make it difficult to go about one’s daily routine–especially if that routine involves a cell phone or computer. Treating a migraine can be difficult as most medications don’t do much for taking the pain away. It’s common for many to resort to sitting in a dark, cool room while they wait for it to pass.

Nausea

Nausea

Pain felt from a migraine can be very intense, and can even lead to extreme nausea that may result in vomiting. If you are someone who suffers from intense nausea while battling a migraine, know you aren’t alone. Roughly eight out of every ten people who experience migraines in the US report feeling nausea during a migraine.

Auras

Auras

For many, a migraine can appear out of nowhere. Either you wake up with one in the morning or it creeps up on you during the day. For others, however, they might get a warning of the symptoms to come. They will experience what is called an “aura,” aka visual phenomena, weakness or numbness on one side of the body, vision loss, pins and needles in an arm or a leg, or difficulty speaking.

How Ketamine Helps Migraines

Migraines can be difficult to treat, but never impossible. Studies have shown that ketamine can be used as both a trusted anesthetic and pain reliever. In fact, it’s been used for decades to relieve pain and is now a powerful treatment option for chronic pain conditions.

How it works is ketamine interacts with the NMDA receptor in the nervous system, as well as other receptors, and can impact the amount of pain you experience. Additionally, ketamine is known to help treat some of the other side effects associated with chronic pain like depression or fatigue.
