I'm a returning member of Daily Strength and am in need of some information and support. I'm 67 yrs old and was diagnosed with FM when I was 28 yrs old. Been there done that with most treatments and I have found that acupuncture and deep tissue massage works best for me. But my pain doc is suggesting something new and I can't find much info on the treatment so I thought I'd turn to y'all.
I've been having life stopping back pain that isn't very responsive to the Norco they give me. So during my last visit my pain doctor, he suggested that perhaps we should try ketamine infusions. I can't find much with the exception of research papers but I'm not finding answers to all my questions. He is suggesting a series of 8 infusions done twice a week for 4 weeks. Hoping it will help with this back pain but also with the nerve pain I'm having mainly at night. (I'd love to unzip my skin and just step out of it. Everything causes irritation....the seams of my pjs or gowns, the roughness of the sheets and I buy the softest sheets I can find, usually Egyptian cotton or satin but when I get like this even those can feel like burlap.)
One of my questions is will there be any interaction with my other meds and the other is this likely to cause over all numbness? If you can answer any of my questions, I would appreciate it! I don't like going into anything like this without knowing all the answers that I can find.
