This bookmark file has been compiled during a period of almost 15 years of personal part-time research on behalf of face pain patients, their families, and medical professionals who treat chronic face pain. Some of the links have been sent along by others working in the field, and some I have found on my own. I try to update the list every few months, but sometimes fail in my diligence for simple lack of time.
Please understand that this is not an exhaustive list, or even necessarily the "best" list, though I do my best to cull out any obvious stinkers. These are starting points that might possibly shorten your learning curve. And make no mistake -- if you hope to be treated effectively, you or someone who is routinely close to you and in a position to lend support, simply must engage actively in research that allows you to climb that learning curve on your own behalf. You must learn about this field of knowledge more intimately than many doctors are able to or regrettably and in some few cases) inclined to. And you must develop a tolerance for uncertainty, because there is still a lot of that commodity circulating at the most fundamental levels of research on pain. There is a great deal yet to learn, and frequently there is reason for reservations concerning much of what the medical profession thinks it "knows" on the subject.
Possibly the most valuable resources you can use on your own behalf are those we call "living documents" or more appropriately "living data stores". Such resources are constantly growing, adding new links or dropping outdated links. These are places you should return to periodically to see what's been added. A few may require that you "join" or "register" but the basic services of all of them are free. These have been stacked in alphabetical order, not precedence.
Many professionals and some deeply knowledgeable amateurs write widely on the World Wide Web, or in source articles referenced on the Web. The following are articles and other resources I've found over time, and believe to be informative, thoughtful, and balanced in their treatment of pain issues. Some are collections of filtered resources.
