Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur personer med Multipel skleros (MS) upplever att sjukdomen påverkar deras dagliga liv. Metoden var en beskrivande litteraturstudie. Arton vetenskapliga artiklar av kvalitativ och kvantitativ karaktär analyserades. Databaserna Medline via PubMed och Cinahl användes vid sökningen av artiklar. Huvudresultatet i denna studie visade att personer med MS upplevde att deras sjukdom och dess symtom hade en stor påverkan på det dagliga livet. Dessutom framgick det att de upplevde sin hälsa och livskvalitet som sämre än den övriga befolkningen. Förekomsten av symtom som påverkade det dagliga livet var väldigt varierande och unikt för varje enskild individ. De symtom som var vanligast förekommande och som påverkade livskvaliteten var fatigue, smärta, nedsatt rörlighet, kognitiva förändringar, sociala förändringar, samlevnads- och inkontinensproblem. Den slutsats som framkom var att ett flertal symtom var vanligt förekommande och alla sågs påverka personens välbefinnande negativt.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe how people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) feel that the disease affects their daily lives. The method was a descriptive literature study. Eighteen scientific articles, both qualitative and quantitative, were analyzed. The articles were found by using Medline by PubMed and Cinahl. The main finding of this study is that MS persons feel that their illness and its symptoms have a major impact on their daily lives. Moreover, it appears that they perceive their general health and quality of life to be worse than that of the general population. The presence of symptoms that affect their daily lives is very varied and unique to each individual. The most common symptoms, which affected the quality of life, was fatigue, pain, reduced mobility, cognitive changes, social changes, sexual problems and incontinence. The conclusion of the study was that a number of symptoms were common, and that they all had a negative effect on the well-being.
