Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), (also known as prosopalgia, the Suicide Disease or Fothergill's disease) is a neuropathic disorder characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face, originating from the trigeminal nerve.

One, two, or all three branches of the nerve may be affected. It is "one of the most painful conditions known to humans, yet remains an enigma to many health professionals."[5] This pain may be felt in the ear, eye, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, cheeks, teeth, and/or jaw and side of the face; some patients also experience pain in their left index finger.

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is not easily controlled but can be managed with a variety of treatment options. It is estimated that 1 in 15,000 people suffer from trigeminal neuralgia, although the actual figure may be significantly higher due to frequent misdiagnosis. In a majority of cases, TN symptoms begin appearing after the age of 50, although there have been cases with patients being as young as three years of age. It is more common in females than males.

Bahasa Melayu:
Penyakit ini boleh dirawat dengan sempurna melalui rawatan homeopathy dan akupunktur
Pesakit harus menjalani tidak kurang dari 10 terapi akupunktur untuk menyembuhkan penyakit ini.
