Trigeminal neuralgia is the most painful condition in the world.
So what is Trigeminal Neuralgia ? ( TN)

What Does TN feel like
It’s hard to describe too often described what a TN attack feels like.
For me, a Trigeminal neuralgia attack feels like hundreds of electric shocks, suddenly attacking my face.
It can feel like shards of glass or razors digging into your face.
The pain can be in my eyes and jaw. Some suffer the pain is in the teeth and gums.
TN is also called the Suicide disease because of how painful it is.
A few celebrities over time have suffered from this disease, including Blink 182 drummer Tra
What cause TN?
The fifth cranial nerve provides intense pain to the left or right side of your face.
I have been found to have compressions on both sides of my face. So my TN is bilateral which fortunately is rare.
