Ketamine – hope for my migraine

I have hope.

I’m going inpatient to have ketamine treatment for my refractory chronic migraine in the near future, just waiting on insurance approval. It takes longer for me to get approval because I have two insurances. (private from hubby’s work and Medicare). Luckily after approval this hospital trip shouldn’t cost much if anything. I’m so very lucky to have this, it breaks my hears so many do not have insurance, it is inexcusable for people in this country to go without needed healthcare. But that is not what I’m here for today.

If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I am already using Spravato (esketamine) for medication resistant depression. Here’s an interesting article about that: https://mindbody-therapeutics.com/whats-the-difference-between-ketamine-and-esketamine/

You can read about Ketamine use for refractory migraine in this Healthline article.. and here is a post written by a person who had Ketamine treatment for her refractory chronic migraine. Headache Camp 2. It’s a very good read.

I don’t really have much more to say right now. Head is pounding and I need to rest my eyes.

As soon as I get my treatment I’ll write more about it.

Please know you are all in my heart, even if I’m not in contact as much as I’d like.

  1. Wendy. It’s Kim. From I tripped over a stone. No I JUST started a silly, funny RV blog. Can’t do drama anymore. I think about you and Stuart every holiday! As we try to make it on our own… we were so close to meeting then Covid nixed that. I’m following and hoping ketamine will prove helpful. Hang in there. Missed you! 💝

    1. Hi Kim!!
      I think about you so often!!
      The Ketamine helped a lot.
      Just realized the follow-up post isn’t there, guessi didn’t hit publish😂
      COVID has nixed a lot, but missing you was one of the biggest!!!
      I look forward to reading about your travels
      As you can see I don’t post often any more, I find it a good way to keep track of when things happened.
      I’d also miss some people.😍
