17,112 Signatures Goal: 20,000

Created and Sponsor by TNnME (Trigeminal Neuralgia and Me) and the International TN Awareness Fighters.

We're asking the World Health Organization (WHO): To take action regards to Trigeminal Neuralgia, ALL Neuralgia (aka "TN" "Suicide Disease") & Facial Pain Disorders by adding Trigeminal Neuralgia to their "Health Topics" list.

This year awareness campaign is dedicated to the Children & Teens with Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders. The Facial Pain Research Foundation, TNnME, TN & Facial Pain Disorders sufferers and the International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Fighters give thanks to all those that are participating on the 3rd International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day on October 7th, 2015 by "Light up Teal"!

By adding Trigeminal Neuralgia to your health topic list, this will also open doors for all neuralgia and facial pain disorders!

It will create awareness, access to resources and create opportunities for funding & research.

TN is...characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face originating from the Trigeminal Nerve. The pain felt is the most excruciating known to man, Hence why it is called the "Suicide
Disease". This condition is so rare that only 1 in 20,000 people have it. But that number could be higher due to misdiagnosis. Women than man are more likely to be affected. Usually those older than 50 are diagnosed, but you can have it as young as 3 yrs. old!

People signing this petition are supporting Oct. 7th as the official International Awareness Day for Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders.

We must inform people of what Trigeminal Neuralgia is, it's characteristic, symptoms & treatments.

Joining our voices together, we can be heard around the world!

    TN causes severe pain and most doctors and people in general do not understand the pain that it causes.
