New Chronic Pain Treatment

Ketamine is used to treat various chronic pain syndromes, especially those that have a neuropathic component like trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, complex regional pain syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia. Low dose ketamine produces strong analgesia in neuropathic pain states, presumably by inhibition of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor although other mechanisms are possibly involved, including enhancement of descending inhibition and anti-inflammatory effects at central sites.

Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury, chronic pain is very different. Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, such as a back sprain, or there may be an ongoing cause, such as illness.

Like any long-term health problem, the condition often leads to complications beyond your physical symptoms, such as new or worsened depression, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Chronic pain can make it more difficult to keep up at work, manage tasks at home and attend social gatherings, leading to problems in your relationships and financial instability. Some research suggests that the more severe your pain, the more serious these problems.
