    Dr. Ginerva Liptan, author and FM patient, touted ketamine's effects on The National Pain Report.

    She suggested that ketamine maybe causing the "massively overstimulated" NMDAR receptors in FM to "cool down" or reset for weeks at a time. She believes "ketamine could be big" in fibromyalgia.

    Thomas Insell, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) at the NIH felt ketamine might be the biggest breakthrough in depression ever:


    Ketamine is able to restore nerves in one of the places of the brain - the prefrontal cortex - that is impacted in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and fibromyalgia. It's ability to improve fatigue in depression lead researchers to suggest it may be able to do the same in other central nervous system disorders.
