I started getting severe pain in the left side of my face on Sunday - top and bottom jaw and toward the ear. I assumed it was either a bad tooth (although not likely as too far spread) or an abcess. I saw the dentist yesterday and had xrays but nothing has shown up. He has given me antibiotics in case it is an abcess and also, as I have a cold, he suggested a sinus infection was possible. However, I suddenly remembered today that someone I knew mentioned they got Neuralgia and it sounded similar. I am still unsure but I know there is a link between Fibromyalgia and Thyroid so just wondered if there was a link with Neuralgia?
