Created and Sponsor by TNnME(TrigeminalNeuralgia and Me)

We're asking theWorld Health Organization (WHO): To take action onTrigeminal Neuralgia, ALL Neuralgia (aka "TN" "Suicide Disease") &Facial Pain Disorders!

Please add Trigeminal Neuralgia to the "Health Topics" list.

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 effected. Usually those older than 50 are diagnosed, but you can have it as young as 3 yrs old!

People signing this petition are supportingOct. 7th as the official International Awareness Dayfor Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders.

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

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

NO $$ needed for your signature on this petition just your name, email address, then hit the "Sign Now" button and close out.

    Watching my husband in such pain for the last few years is life changing for both of us. He is now running out of medication options.
