Salman Khan

Salman Khan revealed in 2011 that he is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia also known as the suicide disease. “I am suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, a facial nerve problem I have had since the last seven years. But now, it’s getting worse. Ab dard hadd se paar ho gaya hai and I am going to kill it,” he had told the media. 

The disorder occurs due to the inflammation of trigeminal nerve in the face. And this inflammation can cause intense pain. The pain can be so severe that the disease often causes depression in patients.
