We all know that Salman Khan suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia, a facial nerve disorder which has been troubling him for many years and despite the pain, he’s managed to give his best for Tubelight and hides his pain while in public or shooting for a movie.
Salman Khan disclosed about his medical condition Trigeminal Neuralgia, to the media at the launch of the first song from his movie Tubelight in Dubai. The disease is also known as suicide disease as the patients suffering from the disease develop suicide tendencies. Recalling that one point in his life, where the actor wanted to end it, although he worked harder, he says, Salman Khan first disclosed about his medical condition in 2001. He said back then.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a disorder that affects the trigeminal nerve. It causes extreme, burning pain on a person’s face that can last between a few seconds to a few minutes. The pain can be so severe that the disease often causes depression in patients.
However, the actor did not let the disease deter him from his path. So at that point of time, I realised that I need to work really hard. No matter how much pain you are going through, it made me realise that you can’t put any subtitles — your ligament is torn, you have the flu or that your knee is hurting — in any of your scenes. Your fans don’t care about it and that you really need to give your best on screen. Once it’s printed, it’s lifelong, he said.
Salman even went to the US for treatment and is now well.
