No: The radiation from x rays is still "very low risk" and the harm from cumulative x rays is not seen immediately, but over years. If your symptoms persist, it would be wise to see your physician and discuss this.

No: The symptoms you describe would not be caused by radiation in the amount that you describe. However, it is important that you find out what is causing the symptoms. Ask your physician what he or she thinks. I hope this helps.
