Fourth annual International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day approaches

Posted: Updated:

On October 7, the fourth annual International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day will be held.

Known as the "suicide disease," due to the pain it causes, Trigeminal Neuralgia has many trials of medication, doctors and procedures.

From types of the disorder that range in every day pain, spikes of pain, numbness, soreness and swelling, not every person has the same symptoms.

The annual event will be recognized by Mayor Hart on October 3 at the Waterloo city council meeting.  People interested in the proclamation can come to the event at 5:30 p.m.

People are also encouraged to get the town to "light up teal" for the cause.
