  Trigeminal Neuralgia
Trigeminal neuralgia, or Tic Douloreux, is a neuropathic disorder of the trigeminal nerve that causes episodes of intense pain in the eyes, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw, and lower jaw. Trigeminal neuralgia is considered by most physicians to be the most painful condition known to man, and has, in fact, been called the "suicide disease," because this has been the choice of many people who were unable to have their pain controlled with medications or surgery. An estimated one in 25,000 people suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia, although the number may be significantly higher, as this disease is often misdiagnosed.
