After years of struggling with chronic pain, I was finally approved for ketamine treatment. Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic that is sometimes used off-label to treat pain. I was nervous about the treatment, but my pain had gotten so bad that I was willing to try anything.
The treatment itself was quick and relatively painless. Within an hour of the ketamine infusion, I could tell that my pain was significantly reduced. I was able to get out of bed and move around without the excruciating pain that I had been living with for so long.
While the immediate results of the ketamine treatment were amazing, the most incredible thing happened a few days later. For the first time in years, I woke up pain-free. I could not believe it! After years of struggling, I finally had my life back.
If you are struggling with chronic pain, I would highly recommend considering ketamine treatment. It has completely changed my life for the better and I am so grateful for the relief it has given me.
Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic for decades, but its off-label use as a treatment for pain is a more recent development. A small but growing body of research suggests that ketamine may be an effective alternative to traditional pain medications, with a lower risk of addiction and fewer side effects.
I was intrigued by the prospect of ketamine as a pain treatment, so when my doctor suggested it as an option for my chronic pain, I was eager to try it. I was curious to know what would happen right after ketamine treatment, and how long the effects would last.
Here’s what I experienced in the hours and days following my ketamine infusion:
Immediately after the infusion, I felt a sense of relaxation and well-being. The pain in my body was not completely gone, but it was noticeably lessened. I felt calm and sleepy, and I had a little trouble keeping my eyes open.
Within an hour or so, the sedating effects of the ketamine began to wear off and I was able to go about my day. The pain relief lasted for several hours, though it was not complete. I still had some pain, but it was manageable and did not interfere with my daily activities.
Over the course of the next few days, the pain relief continued. It was not constant, but it was there when I needed it and allowed me to get through my days with relatively little discomfort. By the end of the week, the pain was significantly less than it had been before treatment.
I am now several weeks out from my ketamine treatment, and the pain relief is still going strong. I am so grateful to have found this treatment option that has helped me to finally get some relief from my chronic pain.
It’s been a little over 24 hours since I received ketamine treatment for pain, and so far I’m feeling pretty good. The treatment itself was a bit strange and uncomfortable, but it didn’t last long and the pain relief has been definitely worth it. I’m feeling more mobile and my pain is at a manageable level, so I’m able to get up and move around more which is great.
So far the main side effect I’m experiencing is mild dizziness, but that’s to be expected given the nature of the drug. Overall I’m feeling pretty positive about the whole experience and hopeful that this will be a successful treatment for me.
