Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is often considered the most painful disorder known to mankind. TN (a.k.a. tic douloureux) is a disorder of the fifth cranial (trigeminal) nerve that causes episodes of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain in the areas of the face where the branches of the nerve are distributed, such as the lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw, and lower jaw.
