Migraine Q & A

What is a migraine?

A neurological condition, migraines cause attacks of debilitating symptoms, including:

  • Severe headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smell
  • Visual disturbances like auras or halos

You might also experience numbness, tingling, or have problems speaking during a migraine attack.

Migraines aren’t fully understood. However, research indicates that abnormal neural activity stimulates your symptoms. Factors like hormone fluctuations, bright lights, temperature extremes, and stress can trigger migraine attacks.  

When should I talk to a doctor about migraines?

Migraines can be severely disruptive, so you should talk to a doctor if you experience migraines at all. If you have migraines or severe headaches for more than 15 days each month, your condition is classified as chronic. 

How are migraines treated?

Conventional treatment for migraines often involves medication to soothe migraines or prevent them from happening in the first place. For example, some physicians provide Botox® injections to temporarily paralyze the nerves that contribute to migraine symptoms or an occipital nerve stimulator to interrupt the pain signals. 

However, these conventional approaches to migraines aren’t always effective. The team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado offers ketamine infusion therapy as an alternative if you’ve tried other migraine treatments but haven’t had relief. 

Ketamine infusion therapy stimulates specific receptors in your brain and the production of glutamate, which supports healthy brain function. It often provides rapid relief of migraine symptoms and long-term results. 

How do I know if ketamine infusion therapy is right for me?

The team at Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado provides comprehensive exams and consultations to determine if ketamine infusion therapy is right for you. Make sure to share your full medical history as well as a review of all other migraine treatments that you’ve tried in the past. 

What happens during ketamine infusion therapy for migraines?

You receive your ketamine infusion while you relax in a comfortable chair. Treatment usually takes around an hour. A member of the team stays with you throughout your treatment, monitoring your vital signs every five minutes to ensure your safety and comfort. Some patients have floating sensations or mild hallucinations during their treatment, but these side effects go away soon after your infusion is over. 

After your treatment, you feel tired and need a friend or family member to drive you home. Any tiredness should pass after a good night’s sleep.

If you have migraines that haven’t responded to other treatments, call Military Matters Ketamine Clinic of Colorado or make an appointment online today to find out if ketamine infusion therapy is right for you.
