Abstract [en]

Background: Migraine is a chronic disaese, often described as a growing publich health problem. One of the suffering groups are adolescents and the prevalence of the migraine is one of the most common reasons why school based health clinics are contacted. The state is related to an extensive, physical and psychological suffering. Objectives: The aim with the presented study was to illuminate the experienced life situation of the adolescent migraineurs. Method: The exploration of articles were done with restriction in databases as Pubmed, CINAHL and psycINFO. The 13 chosen articles were viewed, analyzed and compiled in four different categories with eight sub-categories. Results: The presented outcome reveals that migraine effects the life of adolescents in four different dimensions. The state impacts negatively on the physical and psychological well-being. Furthermore it influences school and leisure of the suffered group. A tendency of isolation and denial is seen as a repeated behaviour in the adolescent migraineurs. Conclusion: Embracement and acceptance ought to be present for the possibility, to create and develop an individual lasting coping strategy. This way of thinking might improve the life situation of the adolescent migraineurs. Keywords: Migraine, adolescents, life changing events, coping strategies, effects.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Migrän är en kronisk sjukdom och den beskrivs som ett växande folkhälsoproblem. En grupp individer som drabbas är ungdomar och åkomman är en av de vanligaste orsakerna till uppsökt skolvård. Tillståndet är nära bundet till ett omfattande fysiskt och psykiskt lidande. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturstudien var att belysa den upplevda livssituationen hos ungdomar med migrän. Metod: Artiklar har sökts i databaserna Pubmed, CIHNAL och psycINFO och därefter kvalitetgranskats. 13 utvalda artiklar analyserades och sammanställdes i fyra kategorier med åtta underkategorier. Resultat: Resultatet visar att migrän påverkar livet för ungdomar i fyra olika dimensioner. Åkomman påverkar den fysiska och psykiska hälsan negativt och inverkar på ungdomarnas skola och fritid. En tendens av isolering och förnekelse kunde ses som upprepade beteenden. Slutsats: Bemötande och acceptans bör infinnas hos den migränsjuke för att vidare kunna skapa och utveckla en individuellt hållbar copingstrategi som förbättrar livssituationen. Nyckelord: Migrän, ungdomar, livshändelser, copingstrategier, effekt.
