Trigeminal Neuralgia exceeding $100 Million Dollars
Noted in 2005, approximately 8000 patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) were undergoing surgery each year in the United States alone, at an estimated cost exceeding $100 million. Source: NCBI, 6/22/2014 - Cambridge, USA 22nd June 2014

This is a growing and international cry for help. We’re asking the World Health Organization to add Trigeminal Neuralgia on their "Health Topic List"

“Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), often described as one of the most painful conditions with which to live, is primarily caused by the compression of the fifth cranial nerve (trigeminal nerve), which results in exacerbation and remission of severe facial pain.

The issues specific to trigeminal pain include the problematic impact on daily function. By nature of the geography of the pain (affecting the face, eyes, scalp, nose, mouth) interference with just about every social function we take for granted is significant. The trigeminal nerve is the largest sensory nerve in the body representing over 50% of the sensory cortex. It is no wonder that pain within the trigeminal system in the face is often inescapable.” Source: UK TN Consultant

If you’re not suffering now with TN and/or Facial Pains Disorders you could be next so you’ll need to know:

Research: International TN Sufferers working towards a CURE for Trigeminal Neuralgia:

The need is great and the costs are considerable. The best way that most can help is through generous donations and ongoing, sustained, support for efforts such as those fostered by our own Facial Pain Research Foundation . We need everyone’s help and support to drive this mission forward and ultimately succeed. We give thanks to William H. and Leila Cilker $500,000 Matching Gift to The Facial Pain Research Foundation, so the time is now for donations and fundraising.
