I Want My Life Back

In the United States, 1 in 15,000 people—less than 200,000 total—suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia, a disorder of the fifth cranial nerve, classifying this disease as rare by the Office of Rare Diseases. Other than the patients themselves, their families, and highly-specialized doctors and dentists, few have heard of this disorder. Until now.

Supported by interviews with the leading doctors in the field, time spent with patients and their families, and footage from various conferences and support groups, this story engages with the lives of three very different TN patients who live within very common constraints, grasping for hope in the midst of suffering.
