We're asking the World Health Organization (WHO): To take action on Trigeminal Neuralgia(aka "TN" "Suicide Disease") & Facial Pain Disorders! Please add Trigeminal Neuralgia to the "Health Topics" list.
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!
By WHO adding TN to their list of illnesses which can expand awareness, access to resources and create opportunities for funding & research.
People signing this petition are supporting Oct. 7th 2014 as the 2nd Official International Awareness Day for Trigeminal Neuralgia.
We must inform people of what TN is, it'scharacteristic,symptoms & treatments.
Joining our voices together, we can be heard around the world!

My sister in law has bilateral TN.. Horrible!
More awareness & research is needed. The pain is just too excruciating as well as debilitating when it strikes.
