Welcome, I am so glad you have found your way to hope4tn.org! This site is the beginning of a dream come true for me. When I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) in July of 2010 my life came to a screeching halt. Prior to TN, I was an Algebra and Geometry teacher. After my diagnosis, I tried every medication to no avail. Two Microvascular Decompression (MVD) surgeries later, I was no longer able to teach because of the excruciating pain.
That is just the very start of the uphill battle that has been my journey fighting the battle against Trigeminal Neuralgia. Please check back soon for more information, updates, and opportunities to connect with others suffering from TN and Facial Pain from around the world.
