The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK exists to:
- Provide support, encouragement and a National Webinars Host by Aneeta Prem for Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) patients and their supporters.
- Collate and share information and research material about TN and treatment options. Promote awareness and understanding of TN amongst the general public and healthcare professionals.
The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK (TNA UK) was founded in 1999 by a TN patient and a medical consultant to help sufferers throughout the UK. TN was previously thought to affect some 6,000 people, mostly women over 50. However, recent research indicates prevalence to be considerably higher at 0.1% of the population (i.e., 63,000 people) and to include a greater number of younger men and women.
