ROCHA, Tiago Humberto Rodrigues  e  JESUS, Ludmila Madeira. Fibromyalgia: Impasses of demand for the psychoanalytic clinic. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.3, pp. 467-486. ISSN 0103-5665.

This study aims to investigate the challenges of developing a subjective demand for the clinic of patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia, starting with the observation that these subjects frequently arrive at the psychoanalytic clinic by referral, marked by biomedical hegemonic discourse and somatic complaints. To do so, six women diagnosed fibromyalgia were interviewed. Data were analyzed according to thematic content analysis guidelines, based on the psychoanalysis theoretical framework. The discussion was divided into three thematic axes: (I) pain and demand; (II) fibromyalgia and psychosomatic phenomenon; and (III) the subject between scientific discourse and pain. As a result, it was noticed that there is a difficulty in elaborating a demand for psychological care in the case of fibromyalgia. This difficulty can be addressed by the symbolic rejection that is noted in cases of chronic pain, which does not seem to articulate an analytic symptom or psychic elaboration. In addition, the alienation of the participants from the scientific discourse became evident, which deprives them of knowledge about their own suffering.

Palavras-chave : psychoanalysis; fibromyalgia; demand; chronic pain; discourse.
