Trigeminal Neuralgia, sometimes called Tic Douloureux, is a disorder of the 5th cranial nerve resulting in severe facial pain. People describe it as electric shock-like and it is often called the world's worst pain. Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) most often strikes people over 50 but it can occur at any age.
