World Trigeminal Neuralgia Day is celebrated worldwide on 7th of October every year. Trigeminal Neuralgia is probably the most well-known and notorious of the facial pain syndromes caused by nerve dysfunction and is particularly traumatic and debilitating, warranting its own awareness day on October 7th.
Often called the Suicidal Disease, trigeminal neuralgia pain may range from sudden, severe, and stabbing to a more constant, aching, burning sensation. Any light or normal touch can act as a trigger for an episode of intense facial pain such as shaving, washing the face, putting on makeup, brushing teeth, eating, drinking, talking, or even the feeling of cold air on the face. The pain may be seasonal with a peak at the onset of winters and spring.
