Patients ́experiences of living with fibromyalgia. : A literature study (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Fibromyalgi är en kronisk sjukdom som drabbar cirka 2 - 4 % av befolkningen, varav 80 % kvinnor. Trots att sjukdomen beskrevs redan under tidigt 1800-tal, under andra alias, är orsaken fortsatt nebulös. Fibromyalgi manifesteras av extensiva symtom som dagligen utgör fysiskt-, socialt-, mentalt- och kognitivt lidande för patienten.

Syfte: Syftet var att belysa patienters erfarenheter av att leva med fibromyalgi.

Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie genomfördes, baserad på data från tio kvalitativa artiklar. Materialet kodades och delades in i kategorier.

Resultat: Resultatet delades in i fem kategorier: begränsningar i vardagen, mentala begränsningar, begränsningar i sociala relationer, begränsningar i arbetslivet ochbegränsningar i vårdkontakten. Fibromyalgi påverkade hela patientens liv och orsakade lidande. Upplevda symtom bidrog till social isolering där bristande kunskap även ansågs vara en bidragande faktor, vilket påtvingade livsstilsförändringar som utgjorde ett hot mot patientens identitet och självkänsla.

Slutsats: Studien tydliggjorde hur fibromyalgi påverkade patienten fysiskt, kognitivt, mentalt och socialt. Extensiva symtom och bristande bemötande bidrog till social isolering, vilket utgjorde ett hot mot patientens identitet och självkänsla. Samtliga patienter upplevde genomgripande brister i sjukvården. Ökad kunskap om fibromyalgi och sjukdomens påverkan på patientens liv skulle främja sjuksköterskans omvårdnad ur ett personcentrerat- och hälsofrämjande förhållningssätt.

Abstract [en]

Background: Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease which affects about 2 - 4 % of the population, of which 80% are women. Although the disease was described in the early 18th century, during other aliases, the cause remains nebulous. Fibromyalgia is manifested by extensive symptoms that daily constitute physical, social, mental and cognitive suffering for the patient.

Aim: The aim was to enlighten the patients ́ experience of living with fibromyalgia.

Method: A general literature study was conducted, based on the findings in ten qualitative articles. The result was encoded and divided into categories.

Results: The results were divided into five categories: limitations in everyday life, mental limitations, limitations in social relationships, limitations in working life andlimitations in the care contact. Fibromyalgia turned out to affect the patients ́ world of life and caused suffering. Experienced symptoms contributed to social isolation where lack of knowledge was a contributing factor, as a forced lifestyle change proved to be a threat to the patients ́ identity and sence of self.

Conclusion: The study clarified how fibromyalgia affected the patient physically, cognitively, mentally and socially. Extensive symptoms and lack of reception contributed to social isolation, which posed a threat to the patient's identity and sence of self. Some patients experienced profound shortcomings in health care. Increased knowledge of the fibromyalgia impact on the patient's life would promote the nurse's care from a person-centered and health-promoting approach.
