|Chronic pain is typically treated symptomatically, without regard for the origin of the discomfort. This can have tragic consequences, especially if the pain is associated with a disease which can lead to permanent damage. Chronic pain patients are like a flat tire. There are multiple etiologies for a pain in a single location. Unless the cause of the pain is diagnosed and removed, the patient may receive an ineffective treatment. Likewise, there may be several disorders with the same clinical manifestation. The lecture consists of clinical presentation of the symptoms of various facial pains, the associated signs, the recommended laboratory studies to help confirm the diagnosis and then a discussion of the appropriate treatments. A description of an expert diagnostic system, developed by a team of physicians from Johns Hopkins Hospital, which gives diagnoses with a 96% correlation with diagnoses with Johns Hopkins Hospital physicians, will be presented.|
