Mumbai: Bollywood actor Salman Khan will fly to the United States to undergo treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia, a nerve disorder that causes intense pain in the face.

Reports about “Dabangg” Khan’s health have been in news for sometime but his family had earlier denied it claiming he was fit and fine.However, the actor himself revealed about his condition in a newspaper article here today.
“The pain is a bit too much now. So I am going now to the US to get it fixed…There is constant pain and if you google this thing you will find out that the amount of pain it causes results in maximum amount of suicides,” he wrote.
“If there was a choice to give this pain to my worst enemy I would not give it. They wouldn’t be able to take it,” he added.
“There is a nerve that comes out of the brain and goes into three parts –left side of the head, upper jaw and cheek.During ‘Partner’ (2007) it started on the top left side of my face. So whenever it would get pressed it gave me a solid current.
“Then during ‘Veer’ (2010), the pain came down towards the lower jaw and it was so painful that it used to take me about an hour-an-half to eat omelet,” the actor said.
