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

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

This year awareness campaign is dedicated to @WHO we are! @WHO I am and how @WHO (World Health Organization) can help withTrigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain Disorders. 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. This condition is so rare that only 1 in 20,000 people have it as some might say, but that number could be higher due to misdiagnosis. Women are more likely than men 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 and asking (WHO) to add Trigeminal Neuralgia to their “Health Topic List”

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!
