24,270 Signatures Goal: 40,000

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!

    I have TN and the impact it has had on my quality of life and ability to work is unbelievable. There is no support or help available from centrelink or Dhs, there is no cure and it can take years to find the right treatment mix to be able to cope with daily challenges. Please sign this petition to have TN recognised

    I've been in extreme pain since 2003 as a result of a mva. Brachial plexus nerve avulsion and spinal cord injury is the root of my pain and if TN is cosidered worst pain known to man WHO must have no option but to put TN on their Health Topics list.

    It is high time TN cure research was properly funded - too many people are suffering. TN is affecting many young people despite all the available guidance saying it is mostly common in over 50s. There are more cases of bilateral TN despite current information stating TN is rarely bilateral. Basically, the available information is outdated. There has to be more that can be done in this day and age! Our pets would not be allowed/expected to live with that level of pain. We simply can no longer accept status quo!
