Brief Summary: Fibromyalgia is a cause of chronic pain, classified by the Internal Classification of Diseases (ICD) as a primary chronic pain with specific diagnostic criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR). No treatment to its complete cure is available at this time, all treatments having as purpose pain relief and an improvement of quality of life by combining pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments. One of the mechanisms proposed in fibromyalgia is the central sensitisation phenomenon, by which the central nervous system becomes "hypersensitive" to nociceptive or non-nociceptive stimuli. The receptor involved in this phenomenon is the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor to which ketamine binds. Ketamine has therefore been proposed as a co-treatment in chronic pain with central sensitization phenomena, such as fibromyalgia.
