About TNA UK

The aim of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK is to offer support and encouragement to TN patients, their families and friends, and to provide information on treatments currently available as well as details of any advances being made in the management of this excruciatingly painful and debilitating condition. Another vital part of our work is to raise awareness amongst medical professionals, particularly GPs and dentists, regarding the diagnosis and treatment.

Our Medical Adviser is Professor Joanna Zakrzewska, Consultant Orofacial Pain Lead at the Eastman Dental Hospital UCLH Foundation NHS Trust, London. She is a worldwide authority on TN and has established a Medical Advisory Board consisting of medical and surgical specialists, all of whom have considerable experience in treating Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Within this site you will find information that will help you gain a better understanding of Trigeminal Neuralgia and the treatments currently available. However, this information is not intended as a means of self-diagnosis, but rather as a tool to explore various forms of treatment with your physician and to become more knowledgeable about this condition.

When joining the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK, members receive the additional benefits of an Alert card, quarterly 8-page newsletters and access to our Telephone and Email Helplines. Members can also join one of our Local Support Groups.

As a registered charity, TNA UK is dependent on donations and annual membership fees in order to continue its work and all the officers of the Association give their time and expertise voluntarily. Every time we give a sufferer of Trigeminal Neuralgia some hope of relief from their pain our objectives are being met.

We welcome any support you feel able to give to help us in continuing these objectives and every £1 you donate will help us push forward the barriers of understanding this complicated and rare condition.
