Have you ever heard of the "Suicide Disease" or Trigeminal Neuralgia? It's a very painful and debilitating illness that can strike anyone, for unknown reasons and will bring its sufferers to their knees when an episode hits. There is no cure for Trigeminal Neuralgia, only invasive brain surgery with a 60% success rate in pain relief and only 45% of Trigeminal Neuralgia sufferers are even eligible for this surgery. For people not eligible for surgery, they must rely on heavy duty medications and opiates for thier pain relief, with side effects that take a hugh toll on the body. The medications do not bring total pain relief, they only take the edge off the pain, so that sufferers can at least have some sort of normalcy.

The TNNME organization is requesting the World Health Organization  (WHO) to add "Trigeminal Neuralgia" to their "Health Topics" list.

Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tnnme.tn?ref=tn_tnmn

By WHO adding Trigeminal Neuralgia to their list of illnesses, it will expand awareness, grant access to resources and create opportunities for funding & research.

We need people to sign this petition and are hoping to DESIGNATE Oct. 7th, 2013 as the 1st Official International Awareness Day for Trigeminal Neuralgia.
We must inform people of what TN is, it's characteristic, symptoms & treatments. Joining our voices together, we can be heard around the world!
NO $$ needed ever, just your signature on ipetitions! Click the link below to sign the Trigeminal Neuralgia iPetition: http://www.tnnme.com/  Thank you!

It is possible a combination of massage of the upper cervical spine and Chiropractic adjustments will clear the problem. Give it a try. Dr. Stephen Newdell

To Dr. Stephen Newdell: Thank you for your comment. While it is possible some people with Trigeminal Neuralgia or Face Pain to get relief with massage or upper cervical spine adjustments with a certified NUCCA Chiropractor, it doesn't work for everyone. Thank you again for your suggestion.
