Chronic pain (CP) negatively impacts everyday previously taken-for-granted activities resulting in considerable psychosocial stress for the individual. Qualitative research in pediatric CP is limited despite the considerable influence CP has on the process of establishing one's personal identity during these formative years and invites the opportunity to understand how CP affects these young individuals from their perspective. The objective of the study was to inquire into the experiences of female adolescents living with CP in order to enhance our understanding of how CP affects their personal lives.
