Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is called “the worst pain known to mankind” and “the suicide disorder” by Medical Science. It causes severe unrelenting facial and head pain. It usually attacks one side of the face, but in rare instances can affect both sides. TN is not hopeless, but can be completely life-changing and a challenge, so you need some encouragement. Here are some new ideas for treatment and hope.
Find a research neurologist. If you can’t, ask your regular doctor how many facial pain patients he or she treats. Chances are, the more patients, the more this doctor knows. If you don’t get a good response, consider finding a new doctor.
