according to an ap article in my newspaper today over 100 million americans suffer from chronic pain in the us today. also it stated that there are drs and others who view chronic pain with some prejudice and not informed fact. it costs 558 million /year in medical bills. it states that it is a moral imperative to help those who do. the article was from lauran neegard. just something to think about. we as a population are getting older which has to do with the figures of chronic pain. i guess we are not crazy
