This presentation is about chronic pain that has no known substrate, which is a well-known major problem worldwide and for which there is no real solution. The condition is severely debilitating with major psychosocial and economic consequences. This is actually quite amazing considering the history has given indications, and sometimes even more than that, to further research a variety of hypotheses. Here is where science is cutting off its nose to spite its own face: Research and scientific discoveries are considered to be obsolete or "out of date" after two to five years. Regular evaluation of old studies never or hardly ever takes place in the "rat race" of premiers. This presentation is such an evaluation in a nutshell where the past, present and future is tied together briefly, because one hundred years of chronic pain has to be summarized in 20 minutes. There is still hope.
