    As we are not medically trained here i'm afraid we won't be able to give you any medical advice. I'd advise you to make an appointment to see your GP and they will help you.

    Poppy is right, see your GP who may refer you to a specialist at your local main hospital who may recommend further XRAYs or scans.

    Hi @FIONADT.
    How long has this episode lasted? Do you have a specialist that you see for your neuralgia? Is it possible to contact them, even via their secretary at all? It must be quite worrying when this happens and I hope they're able to give you some more information soon.
