Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka utbredningen av psykosomatiska symptom på en svensk gymnasieskola och om möjligheten att koncentrera sig på skolarbetet påverkas av dessa. Syftet var även att undersöka relationen mellan socialt stöd och psykosomatiska symptom. En enkät delades ut på en gymnasieskola med 95 elever i norra Sverige. Frågan gällande psykosomatiska symptom är hämtad från HBSC och innefattar åtta olika besvär. Totalt 93 av ungdomarna svarade på enkäten. Resultatet visade att 79 procent av killarna och 88 procent av tjejerna på skolan upplever något psykosomatiskt symptom minst en gång i veckan. Av de ungdomar med symptom ungefär en gång i månaden eller oftare rapporterade 31 procent av killarna och 62 procent av tjejerna att det påverkar deras möjlighet att koncentrera sig på skolarbetet. Det fanns i studien inga tydliga samband mellan upplevda psykosomatiska symptom och socialt stöd från personer i omgivningen.
