  1. 1 The revised ASTA symptom scale with 9 items. Statistic correlation analyses were performed using Spearman´s correlation coefficient. *** p < 0.00.
  2. SCL symptom frequency and severity scale. The eight scales in the SF-36 includes PF = Physical Functioning, RP = Role-Physical, BP = Bodily Pain, GH = General Health, VT = Vitality, SF = Social Functioning, RE = Role-Emotional, MH = Mental Health and PCS = Physical Component Summary, MCS = Mental Component Summary.
