Complex Regional Pain Syndrome results from a feedback loop, a faulty messaging application in the nervous system. Because of this, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome with no clear physical cause is said to be neuropathic. Yes, it is often happening in the patient’s head, and yes, it is real.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome often occurs comorbidly with mood disorders. The same neural pathways are involved, and understandably, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome leads to chronic stress. Stress, in turn, increases pain. Ketamine breaks the cycle by reinforcing neurotransmitters, repairing the destruction caused by stress, and freeing the brain to produce natural painkillers.
