Abstract: Chronic pain and exhaustion disorder are included in the choice of care "Rehabilitation of chronic pain with or without comorbidity and exhaustion disorder". The choice of care aims to offer patients specialized multimodal rehabilitation. To be included in the choice of care, patients with chronic pain should score ≥50 on the short version of the self-assessment form Örebro Musculoskeletal Pain Screening Questionnaire (ÖMPSQ Short). To be included in the choice of care, patients with exhaustion disorder should score ≥4,0 on the self-assessment form Shirom-Melamed Burnout Measure (SMBM).
Aims: To evaluate whether there were similarities/differences between patients with chronic pain with or without comorbidity and patients with exhaustion disorder who were referred to a specialist clinic based on the inclusion criteria stipulated in the choice of care "Rehabilitation of chronic pain with or without comorbidity and exhaustion disorder".
Method: Evaluation of 136 patients' responses to self-assessment forms; Personal characteristics, ÖMPSQ Short and SMBM.
Results: Patients with exhaustion disorder could be included in the choice of care for rehabilitation of pain in 51.5% of cases, based on their responses to ÖMPSQ Short. Patients with chronic pain could be included in the choice of care for rehabilitation of exhaustion disorder in 85.7% of cases, based on their responses to SMBM. Patients with exhaustion disorder had higher education than patients with chronic pain. Patients with chronic pain were overweight or were obese and had pain in a greater proportion of the cases and a higher pain intensity compared to patients with exhaustion disorder.
Conclusion: Most importantly to note is that patients with chronic pain also exhibit exhaustion symptoms and that patients with exhaustion disorder in the majority of cases also have pain.
