Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a pain disorder affecting the face. Patients with TN generally have normal sensation in the face, but they also experience random episodes of extremely severe pain. Because of its resemblance to dental-related pain, TN is often under-detected and results in delay in diagnosis. This further prevents patients from receiving timely treatments.

On October 7th, International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness day, the CN tower and the Toronto sign will be lit up in teal to promote awareness.
