"Chronic pain -- the kind that lasts longer than the injury that may have caused it -- afflicts nearly 100 million people in the United States, more than a third of the population, according to the Society for Neuroscience, the world's largest organization of brain researchers. The toll of the suffering is inexact, as are the methods used to diagnose it. But pain that just will not go away is by far the most common neurological disorder -- a $100 billion-a-year burden on American society, experts say. Most of the burden is unnecessary. Despite major advances in the science and practice of pain control, studies consistently show chronic problems remain misunderstood, misdiagnosed and mistreated. Research suggests that as many as half the nation's pain patients are not being treated effectively. That puts millions of people ``in a terrible bind,'' said Skip Baker, president of a militant grassroots organization, the American Society for Action on Pain.
