Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Six-minute Walk Test [ Time Frame: 15 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient is instructed to walk as fast as she can. The distance covered during 6 minutes is documented.

  • Change of Pain Level From Baseline. [ Time Frame: 15 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Pain was measured by The Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) subscale for Pain, which is a self-rated pain on visual analogue scale, 0-100 mm. The higher value, the worse pain.
