    Neuralgia

    Hi,

    Can anyone help me.....

    I was wondering if anyone on this forum suffers from Neuralgia in the head?
    It feels like a bad headache/mirgraine but its more like shooting pains on one side of the head.
    I was wondering if people with Scoliosis get this too or is it just me???
    I don't get them that much one every 4 - 6 weeks sometime i wake up with it cos my neck starts off sore then i get these shooting pains which can last up to 1 - 3 days its not constant every now and then it will happen especially if im laying down or sitting then i get up to move they will start.

    As soon as i have anti - inflamitries with Codein it seems to go away.

    Can anyone help me????

    Hi Lee,
    I have the same symptoms, although they haven't happened for a while (knock on wood). My doctor told me not to worry about it, and I have no idea if it is connected to scoliosis or not. I know that I get the head pains more when I'm stressed.

    Best,
    Anya

    I get them too.

    Neck tension, allergies, stress and cold weather can trigger it.
