Social Security Compassionate Allowance
Received some interesting info from a friend that may help the TN community about the Social Security Compassionate Allowance.  Here's a quote from the website:  "Social Security has an obligation to provide benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are so serious that their conditions obviously meet disability standards.    Compassionate Allowances (CAL) are a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify under the Listing of Impairments based on minimal objective medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to quickly target the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that we can obtain quickly."

============
Although trigeminal neuralgia is not yet on their list of 113 disorders, it certainly should be put there.  

Here's the link
