BC Place lights up teal for Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness

October 7th, 2018

BC Place will light up teal on Sunday, October 7th for Trigeminal Neuralgia International Awareness Day.

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a facial nerve disorder that causes sudden and severe shock-like pain in the face. The disease affects approximately 1.5% of the population. TN can be caused by the irritation of a blood vessel lying in close proximity to the nerve root or by damage to the nerve caused by disease or trauma.
