Metaphorical pain language among fibromyalgia patients
1995 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 9, no 1, 55-59 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Fourteen women with fibromyalgia described their pain experiences using words indicating a model of pain that presented pain as an aggressive physical deformation and a torture-like experience. Metaphorical expressions were used which was seen as a means for enabling the patients to disclose tacit knowledge. The pain experience was narrated as being steady and without any distinct bodily location. Only causes explaining the present aggravation of the pain and treatment leading to a temporary relief were related.
