Bastion Lighting Colour Teal: International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day

Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day is on October 7 and serves as an opportunity for those living with facial pain and their loved ones to come together to raise awareness, educate people about this rare condition, and raise money for support organizations and research. Trigeminal neuralgia is pain associated with your trigeminal nerve, which you may feel in your lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw and/or lower jaw. Everyone’s symptoms are different: you may experience extreme, sporadic, sudden burning or shock-like pain in the face that lasts a few seconds or minutes. For some people, the pain is constant aching, throbbing and/or stabbing.
