Facial Pain Awareness Month

The Facial Pain Advocacy Alliance is so very proud to be sponsoring the 1st Facial Pain Awareness Month in October 2017!

From the Facial Pain Awareness Month official website:

Facial Pain Awareness Month is the month of October, during which the entire facial pain community participates in awareness raising activities.

The Facial Pain Community, online and elsewhere, is comprised of many people with a wide range of diagnoses. The best known facial pain conditions are:

  • trigeminal neuralgia
  • geniculate neuralgia
  • glossopharyngeal neuralgia
  • anesthesia dolorosa/trigeminal deafferentation pain
  • cluster headache
  • paroxysmal hemicrania

Throughout the month of October, people with the diagnoses above, their friends, and their families can promote awareness of the entire constellation of facial pain conditions, with special emphasis on whichever condition has changed their lives.

On this website, you will find the tips and resources you need to get your own Facial Pain Awareness Month off to a good start and on to raising awareness everywhere!
There will be plenty of opportunities for volunteering your energy or ideas, so check back often!
