Living with unexplained pain : an alienation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: I dagens samhälle lever många människor med medicinskt oförklarlig smärta. Oförklarliga symtom kan förklaras som fysiska symtom som trots medicinsk utvärdering förblir odefinierade. För att stödja patienten är det viktigt att se personen som en helhet för att tillgodose den drabbades behov och för att bidra till en god omvårdnad. Syfte: Att beskriva personers upplevelser av att leva med oförklarlig smärta. Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie som genomförts baserad på kvalitativa vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultat: Visade en känsla av utanförskap i samband med att individerna sökte vård. Detta visade sig i form av både brist på respekt i bemötandet och en känsla av att inte bli trodd. Att leva med oförklarlig smärta innebar för individerna att inte kunna leva sina liv som de tidigare gjort. Stödet från det sociala nätverket visade sig vara viktigt men upplevdes som bristfälligt.

Abstract [en]

Background: In today's society, many people live with medically unexplained pain. Unexplained symptoms can be explained by physical symptom that despite medical evaluation remains undefined. To support the patient, it is important to see the person from a holistic point of view in order to confirm the patient's needs and to contribute to good nursing care. Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe people's experiences of living with unexplained pain. Method: A general literature review was conducted based on qualitative scientific articles. Result: Showed a sense of alienation in relation to individuals seeking treatment. This appeared in both a lack of respect in care seeking and the feeling of not being believed. Living with unexplained pain meant that the individuals were not able to live their lives as they had done before. The support of the social network proved to be important but was perceived as inadequate.
