Canadian Trigeminal Neuralgia Association
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.
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.
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.
