Oct 7 - National Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day

What Is National Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day?

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a painful condition that affects many Americans. It can cause extreme pain in the face and jaw, lasting minutes, hours, or even days at a time. While Trigeminal Neuralgia has no known cure, National Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day seeks to raise awareness about this horrible disease and promote the research behind a cure and possible treatment options. Ageing, stroke, cerebral palsy, or even an accident in which the nerves in the cranium are damaged can cause Trigeminal Neuralgia. It is especially difficult to diagnose as well as treat. To support National Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day, you can wear teal to show your support for the cause, or even donate towards the research of trigeminal neuralgia. Educate yourself and others on the signs and symptoms and know what to do should this happen to a loved one.
