Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disease that causes discomfort throughout your body. Medical researchers haven’t identified a specific cause of fibromyalgia, but they believe it could be due to abnormalities in how your brain processes pain signals. Some common fibromyalgia symptoms include:

  • Pain and stiffness through your body
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Reduced memory, concentration, and cognitive function
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Tingling in your hands and feet
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
  • Digestive problems

Women are more likely than men to develop fibromyalgia. Your risk also increases as you age or if you have a condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.

When should I talk to a doctor about fibromyalgia?

Pain is how your body lets you know something is wrong. You should never ignore it or brush it off as an inevitable consequence of getting older.

With fibromyalgia, your symptoms can vary and range in severity from day to day. Most minor issues, such as soreness from overdoing it physically, will subside with a few days of rest. If you have persistent pain that doesn’t get better or is interfering with your life, you should make an appointment with Dr. Mukalel at InfusionMD.

How does infusion therapy treat fibromyalgia?

Dr. Mukalel specializes in infusion therapy. He offers several types of infusions, including ketamine and lidocaine, to manage chronic pain conditions.

Lidocaine infusion therapy

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that can relieve chronic pain and related symptoms when delivered intravenously. The medication blocks pain receptors in your brain and spinal cord, relieving neuropathic pain.

Ketamine infusion therapy


Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic that has been used in surgical settings for decades. Recently, medical researchers have discovered that a low-dose infusion of ketamine can relieve chronic pain by regulating the N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in your brain and spinal cord.

What should I expect during infusion therapy for fibromyalgia?

Infusion therapy should be a relaxing and therapeutic experience. You rest in a comfortable chair while you receive your infusion. You can bring blankets, pillows, and headphones to increase your comfort.

While under the direct supervision of Dr. Mukalel or a clinical team member, you receive your infusion. You might feel tingly or sleepy. Some patients experience a floating or “out-of-body” sensation while having a ketamine infusion.

A friend or family member needs to drive you home after your infusion because you might feel groggy. Any lingering sleepiness should disappear after a good night’s sleep.

Call InfusionMD today or make an appointment online to discover if infusion therapy can relieve your fibromyalgia symptoms.
