The Canadian Trigeminal Neuralgia Association

CaTNA is a network of support groups across Canada dedicated to providing support and encouragement to people with Trigeminal Neuralgia.  We are a not-for-profit organization made up of volunteers willing to share our experience with others.  We are associated with the Facial Pain Association in the United States.

Trigeminal Neuralgia, sometimes called Tic Douloureux, is a disorder of the 5th cranial nerve resulting in severe facial pain.  The pain frequently is triggered by a light touch to the face.  People describe it as electric shock-like and it is often called the world’s worst pain.

If you, or someone you love has Trigeminal Neuralgia, join Canada TN.   Membership is $10 per year.  If you wish to receive newsletters via Canada post, add an additional $10 per year.  This money will be used to establish and maintain support groups across Canada.
