I've been getting these piercing pains on the right side of my face for about a month now, but thought nothing of it as they only last a matter of seconds. It starts at the lower jaw/ear area and seems to spread all the way along the side of my face to to my lip, making my lip tingle.

I went to the dentist this morning because it's been getting worse and I wasn't sure if I might have an abscess but I've been given the all clear, there isn't anything wrong according to the xrays she took. She also squirted cold water and air on my teeth and it didn't hurt, so she has said it might be Neuralgia and to see my doctor.

As usual the first appointment I can get isn't until the 25th January unless it's urgent

Does anyone have Neuralgia
