Hear Janet's Story

No-one can ever forget their first TN attack. Mine occurred while I was entertaining at home. Towards the end of the evening, suddenly, out of the blue and with no warning whatsoever, I experienced the most painful, electric shock-type pain in my right upper jaw area. The pain went as quickly as it had occurred.

TNA UK AGM and Workshop - 2019

Comment from one of our members that attended on Saturday:  Just a line to say thank you to you and all those responsible for yesterday’s conference.  A huge amount of work, I am sure – I was a first timer and I found it helpful and friendly and also encouraging that work is being done to try to find a successful solution to the ghastliness of TN.  

“I would like to say how much I love your reports which I read with interest in every publication you send”   Sheila

“The pack you sent me was extremely useful – it was well put together and thoughtful information”   Catherine

“A fantastic charity offering help and support to a needy and sometimes desperate sufferer”    Linda

“TNA UK is a remarkable organisation.  Thank you for the help and support that you provide”    Alan

“TNA UK is a brilliant resource for help and advice”     Chris

“TNA UK is a life saver and does so much for people”   Tammy

TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA is an extremely severe unilateral episodic facial pain that tends to come and go unpredictably in sudden shock-like attacks. The pain is normally triggered, for example by light touch, and is described as stabbing, shooting, excruciating or burning. It usually lasts for a few seconds but there can be many bursts of pain in quick succession.  There can be slight variations of trigeminal neuralgia which require different treatments.

WE ARE the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK (TNA UK).  We provide information, support and encouragement to those who suffer this excruciatingly painful condition. Our aim is to raise awareness of TN within the medical community and the general public at large.  As a registered charity, TNA UK is entirely dependent on donations and annual membership fees in order to continue its work.  We receive no funding whatsoever from central Government or corporate organisations.
