Fibromyalgia : A litteraturstudy on fibromyalgias possible risk factors (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Fibromyalgi är ett syndrom som kännetecknas av utbredd smärta,

överkänslighet vid beröring men även att övriga delar av kroppen påverkas.

Metod: En litteraturstudie har genomförts där 10 stycken vetenskapliga artiklar har

analyserats och utgjort resultatet.

Syfte: Huvudsyftet är att undersöka möjliga riskfaktorer som kan påverka utvecklandet

av fibromyalgi.

Resultat: Studiens resultat har tagit upp fyra teman med tänkabara riskfaktorer.

Traumatiska barndomshändelser, där både fysisk och verbal misshandel och sexuellt

utnyttjande var riskfaktorer. Att bli utsatt för trauma som vuxen, där fysisk misshandel,

operation och arbetsrelaterad skada ingick, var också en riskfaktor. Stress och ett högt

BMI-värde var också riskfaktorer relaterade till utvecklandet av fibromyalgi.

Diskussion: Studiens resultat visade på att det är flera riskfaktorer som påverkar

utvecklandet av detta syndrom. Alla som utsätts för en av dessa riskfaktorer utvecklar

dock inte fibromyalgi, utan med största sannolikhet så är det en kombination av flera

riskfaktorer som gör att man utvecklar fibromyalgi.

Slutsats: Det behövs mer forskning för att studera sambandet mellan fysiska, psykiska

och sociala riskfaktorer.

Abstract [en]

Background: Fibromyalgia is a syndrome characterized by widespread pain,

hypersensitivity to the touch but other body areas are also affected.

Method: A literature study was conducted in which 10 scientific articles were analyzed and

discussed.

Purpose: The main purpose was to investigate possible risk factors that may affect the

development of fibromyalgia.

Results: The results of this study raised four themes describing risk factors. Traumatic

childhood events, including both physical and verbal abuse and sexual abuse, were risk

factors. Becoming a victim of trauma as an adult, where physical abuse, operation and work

related injuries were included, was a risk factor as was stress and a high BMI.

Discussion: Study results showed that there are many risk factors that affect the development

if this syndrome. All persons exposed to one of these risk factors however does not develop

fibromyalgia, so most likely it is a combination of several risk factors that makes the

development of fibromyalgia possible.

Conclusion: More research is needed to study the connection between physical, psychological

and social risk factors.
