Migraine is an exceptionally distressing condition that can significantly affect peoples health and quality of life. Neurovascular in origin, migraine is characterized by recurrent headaches that vary in intensity, frequency and duration. Additional symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to sound or light and visual disturbances. Patients with chronic migraine have been observed to have altered levels of glutamate in plasma. The connection between migraine and the glutamatergic system is a recent area of study. Areas of the brain, typically associated with migraine, contain neurons that respond to glutamate, the most abundant neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Ketamine has drastically helped some patients with migraine regain function and reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
