What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a disorder of the 5th cranial nerve, which affects the face, eyes, nose, lips, teeth, gums, tongue, and scalp. Due to its painful symptoms and the general lack of knowledge about TN, it has become the focal point of Facial Pain Association. Our goal is to spread the word and find a cure.
