This group is for those with various types of neuropathic facial pain, including trigeminal neuralgia. We are a support group, meeting on the first Saturday of every even month at the Northridge Hospital Medical Center.
If you, a friend, or family member suffers from TN or a related face pain disorder, we are a welcoming support group. Our members include men and women who have had this disorder for months to those who have had it for many years. Some are managing the pain through various techniques, some have had successful surgeries, and we are all here to share our experiences and to help each other.
We discuss methods for managing our pain, and for treatments (including surgical options) for neuropathic facial pain. We sometimes have guest speakers, and sometimes just have roundtable discussions. Also, for more information about facial pain, please visit the Facial Pain Association at <http://fpa-support.org>;. The Facial Pain Association can refer you to a physician, and can provide you with information about this condition, as well as local support groups.
