Welcome to the Texas TNA Support Group!  We are an affiliate of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association, a national, non-profit organization headquartered in Gainesville, FL.

The Texas TNA Support Groups provide support, encouragement and information for over 1,500 Texas TN and related facial pain patients and their families. We help empower patients so they can make informed decisions about their treatment of TN and related facial pain conditions.
