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!

    As someone who suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia I would like to see more done to help figure out why we are suffering from this in the first place.

    This disease affects every aspect of my life, and renders me unable to talk or eat without excruciating pain. Because it hasn't been listed by the WHO, there are no specific medications to alleviate the suffering. The few that help some have dire and lasting side effects, some of which are brain damaging, e. g. Neurontin.

    I have had TN2 & TNP since 1998. I am in constant pain. I will sign whatever is needed to help give this disease more recognition & hopefully someday a cure.

    Nearly every day i suffer from this disease and I can say first hand it truly is debilitating. The fact that so many take their own life due to the pain and the depression is completely unacceptable and we NEED to find a cure!
