The analysis of interviews identified five categories of parents’ experiences of stress related to:

  1. being effected by the symptoms
  2. experiencing the symptoms over and over again
  3. having no control
  4. obtaining medical treatment is challenging
  5. managing problems


the study illuminates how parents’ perceptions of the child’s symptoms, parents’ strategies for managing problems, as well as experiences related to healthcare providers, may increase or decrease parental stress.
