All About Trigeminal Neuralgia: The ‘Suicide Disease’
Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is universally considered to be the ‘worst known pain to mankind’, nicknamed as “suicide disease”.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. You may initially experience short, mild attacks. But trigeminal neuralgia can progress and cause longer, more-frequent bouts of searing pain.
Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men, and it’s more likely to occur in people who are older than 50.
