Fibromyalgia Q&A

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition more common in women than men. Its effects are often widespread, with musculoskeletal pain leading to or contributing to insomnia, mood swings, tension headaches, and other complications that impact your life.

Experts find that fibromyalgia often develops after a major stressful event or physical trauma because these events disrupt the way your brain and nerves process pain signals. 

However, fibromyalgia symptoms can also appear after no such triggering event. The true causes remain a mystery, but genetics likely plays a role. 

Painful and inconvenient as it may be, fibromyalgia has no cure. Fortunately, you can manage the symptoms with personalized care. Pacific KLN Infusions offers a couple of options to relieve some of the most intense fibromyalgia symptoms. 

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

The most prominent symptom of fibromyalgia is regions of pain. You might not feel pain everywhere in your body all at once, but rather in distinct areas. 

One of the diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia is that you experience dull, aching pain in multiple areas, which is often severe. Additionally, you might experience more intense pain than others with the same stimuli.

People experience fibromyalgia in different ways, but there are some common symptoms and effects. With fibromyalgia, you might experience:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Mental fogginess
  • Insomnia or nonrestorative sleep
  • Frequent headaches
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bladder or bowel issues

Fibromyalgia pain regions are located all over the body. If you have fibromyalgia, it’s probable that you experience pain regions both above and below the waist and on both sides of your body. 

What are my treatment options for fibromyalgia?

Pacific KLN Infusions welcomes you in for three unique fibromyalgia treatment options. 

While you shouldn’t discount the effectiveness of healthy lifestyle changes guided by your provider, such as a well-rounded diet and physical therapy, infusion therapy makes a difference for many fibromyalgia patients. 

Your infusion options for fibromyalgia at Pacific KLN Infusions include:

Lidocaine

Lidocaine is a local numbing agent usually delivered via injection. However, when you take it intravenously under professional supervision, you may experience a reduction in fibromyalgia pain. You can get lidocaine infusions with or without ketamine infusions. 

Ketamine

Ketamine, a general anesthetic and sedative, offers a significant reduction in pain for many fibromyalgia patients. You can get it intravenously at Pacific KLN Infusions with or without lidocaine. 

Nutrient therapy

Intravenous nutrient therapy benefits individuals with fibromyalgia and offers some general wellness benefits, including more energy and sleep improvements. 

Your provider at Pacific KLN Infusions tells you whether infusions fit into your treatment plan for fibromyalgia pain and other symptoms.
