There are several facial pain syndromes, but Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) may be the worst. Sudden, stabbing, electrical sensations radiating from the ear down the face are typical leading some to call this syndrome the “suicide disease” because the pain can be so excruciating. We’ll get a firsthand account of living with and overcoming TN from Pat Silver-Lasky. An author, film & TV writer, Pat is also a member of the Hollywood film dynasty founded by Jesse L. Lasky who produced the first feature film in Hollywood and co-founded Paramount Studios. Then, Dr. Kenneth Casey, neurosurgeon and chairman of the Facial Pain Association talks about the most helpful medical and surgical treatments for this.
