About TN and TNA UK

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.
