Abstract : The United States military is a unique population, subject to multiple conditions which may heighten the risk for developing both orofacial pain and widespread pain. Patients with complaints of orofacial pain often have other body pain problems, yet do not report these to their providers. Uncontrolled pain at any location, if not managed, can significantly impact the prognosis of an orofacial pain complaint. OBJECTIVE: Determine, in a Tricare population, the prevalence of pain complaints (by location)throughout the entire body.
