Living with fibromyalgia (FM): sense of coherence, perception of well-being, & stress in daily life

  [ 21 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Soderberg S, Lundman B, Norberg A • www.ProHealth.com • December 10, 1997


Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain syndrome that has a considerable
impact on the ill person's daily life. The purpose of this
study was to describe levels of sense of coherence (SOC),
perceptions of well-being, and stress in daily life in women
with FM in comparison with healthy women, and to determine
whether SOC is related to perceived levels of stress and
well-being. Thirty women with FM were compared with 30 healthy
women matched for Type A behavior. The results revealed a
complex picture of the women with FM. On the one hand, they
reported many symptoms but, on the other, they rated
themselves as feeling quite well and experiencing an SOC in
life, despite severe problems. The FM women with a stronger
SOC perceived greater well-being than those with a weaker SOC.
They felt more hopeful, more free, more valuable, and more
like others. Results suggest that women with a weaker SOC may
need extra support. More research is needed to investigate the
experience of living with FM in order to discover what it is
that makes life worthwhile despite high symptom levels.
